DESCRIPTION:

An important aspect of human anatomy is learning the relationship between body structures and their location as interpreted through palpation of relevant anatomical landmarks. This approach is particularly important during the physical examination. This examination provides the opportunity of relating anatomical knowledge, observation and palpation in a quest to form opinions and, at times, to make or confirm diagnoses.

The primary objective for these five hour long sessions is to review the relationship of surface anatomical locations to structures and when appropriate, describe pathological situations for which structure identification or location may be altered. There will be demonstration but students are expected to be active participants as well. This opportunity is strictly an enjoyable learning experience. There is no grade and there are no formal test questions. The five sessions address relevant structures for the: back; upper extremity; lower extremity; head and neck; and thorax and abdomen. The session dates correspond as closely as possible to the course curriculum without conflicting with exam schedules.
