Elective Title: 93ZR700 — PHYSICAL MEDICINE & REHABILITATION: OUTPATIENT ELECTIVE
The purpose of this elective is to familiarize the student with a broad-based physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) service. Emphasis will be on developing practical history taking skills, as well as perfection of (neuro) musculoskeletal examination techniques. Functional anatomy will be stressed. The student will be exposed to a wide range of outpatient problems such as low back pain, neck pain, radiculopathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, and will learn the basics of electromyography. This elective will be useful for students entering a PM&R residency, for those who would better like to learn to interact with PM&R, and for those interested in functional anatomy.
