MSK tweaked

Clinical anatomy remains a cornerstone in the training of healthcare providers. A thorough knowledge of gross anatomy is essential for the safe and effective practice of musculoskeletal medicine and rehabilitation. Through a combination of didactic lectures and full cadaveric dissection, this course will provide healthcare providers with a complete review of musculoskeletal gross anatomy. The upper limb will be covered in odd years and the lower limb in even years. Each attendee will take an active role in the cadaveric dissections.
