It will help you to better:
  • Employ physical exams to help determine next steps
  • Select optimal imaging modalities and interpret x-rays and MRIs
  • Splint and immobilize both upper and lower extremeties
  • Distinguish whether a patient should be referred to an orthopaedist
  • initiate non-operative management of common orthopaedic conditions
  • And more…
