MPAS 702 Orthopedics Practicum

This five-week clinical practicum introduces students to clinical experience in orthopedics. Students will build on the skills of history taking, performing physical examinations, developing differential diagnoses, formulating diagnoses, designing prevention and treatment plans, and documenting common medical conditions learned throughout the didactic phase of the program and apply these skills in the orthopedic practice setting. Students will have the opportunity to develop skills to care for patients with orthopedic problems in the in- and out-patient settings and to participate in pre-, intra-, and postoperative care.
