MSK Clinical Examination Course

We have no future dates set for this course - Please check back for updates

This multidiciplinary course is aimed at sports medicine clinicians, therapists and other clinicians with an interest in expanding and honing their skills in musculoskeletal examination techniques.

The aim of the course will be to provide a framework or system to base clinical examination on, in each area of the musculoskeletal system, ensuring that important signs are not missed in day to day practice.

The invited faculty includes experienced practitioners from the fields of orthopaedic surgery, physiotherapy, sports medicine and rheumatology.

There are no lectures on the course, just hands-on skills sessions. Emphasis is on good examination technique, clarification of clinical tests, pathology recognition and diagnostic accuracy.

There is a high ratio of faculty to participants, ensuring maximum hands-on experience and allowing plenty of opportunity for participation and discussion.

Delegates will all receive a pre-course book on musculoskeletal clinical examination in advance of the course.

Early application is recommended in order to avoid disappointment, as places are limited.
