The student will have the opportunity to participate in the traditional evaluation and management of disease and disability as well as being oriented toward the impaired performance of function as a result of these conditions. The student will obtain histories from and perform physical examinations on inpatients with particular emphasis on evaluation of function, e.g., neurologic, kinesiologic and self-care function. He/she will be involved in the analysis and management of musculoskeletal disorders common to many situations encountered in internal medicine, family practice, neurology, psychiatry, orthopedic surgery, and neurosurgery. In addition, the student will demonstrate an understanding of methods for function restoration. Evaluation in the course will be based upon at least five (5) case work ups in which the student will present his/her evaluation of function and make recommendations regarding restoration of function. The team approach to the management of these cases will be emphasized. Offered in modules I-XII. Prerequisite: Medical Basic Sciences; 1 required clinical clerkship.
