Crash Course Rheumatology and Orthopedics 2nd Edition PDF
12.8 MB PDF
It has been estimated that musculoskeletal problems are responsible for one in four GP consultations. No matter what medical or surgical career you choose to follow, you are guaranteed to be exposed to patients with orthopaedic or rheumatological conditions.
Despite this, teaching in these specialities can be neglected in the undergraduate curriculum. As a medical student going home for Christmas you will be asked for an opinion on your mate’s injured knee, your auntie’s bunions and your father’s sciatica. (All these scenarios happened to us!) Hopefully this book will prepare you for these embarrassing situations!
The book is designed to give medical students a head start on the wards and make the exciting world of orthopaedics and rheumatology fun and easy to learn. It is also of use to foundation doctors (and will help pass your workplace based competency assessments!), physiotherapists, occupational therapists and nurses.
