MSK, Week 1

This week I start the Musculoskeletal & Locomotor (MSK) block of study. It will cover a number of different topics including: Normal bone growth and development; Normal cartilage structure and joint function; Metabolic bone disease and calcium homeostasis; and lastly, Inflammatory arthritis. The four weeks of study are tied closely to anatomy and clinical skills, perhaps more so than any other block I’ve taken so far. This also means that the exam will be structured a little different than the other blocks, with the clinical skills and anatomy components being integrated into the written final to a much greater extent.
