The aim is to provide the knowledge of the main musculoskeletal diseases of orthopedic and traumatology. The course provides knowledge regarding common orthopedic and traumatological diseases, giving notions about diagnosis and conservative and surgical treatment.
The Physical and Rehabilitative Medicine module aims to identify the main neurological, orthopedic and cardiopulmonary pathologies in order to evaluate their recovery programs. The course also aims to deepen the knowledge on the principles of kinesiology of the spine, hip, knee and shoulder and the main pathologies of these joint districts, to know the various types of muscle injuries and overload pathologies in the sportic (enthesitis, tendinitis).
Should teaching be carried out in mixed mode or remotely, it may be necessary to introduce changes with respect to previous statements, in line with the programme planned and outlined in the syllabus
