The M.D. program in orthopaedic instruction is integrated and designed to introduce the medical student to the entire field of musculoskeletal diseases and injuries. By means of demonstrations, lectures, conferences, clinics and clerkships, the student learns the important specifics of the orthopaedic examination and is exposed to many groups of musculoskeletal problems related to trauma in adults and children. By study of the factual content of common problems in each field, the student’s attention is directed to general principles of diagnosis and treatment.
