ANATOMY AND PATHOLOGY FOR PODIATRISTS
Credit points: 15
In this subject, students will apply and extend their understanding of foot and lower limb anatomy, and consolidate and build knowledge of pathogenesis, causal pathways, clinical presentation and management principles of common medical pathologies of relevance to clinical podiatric practice, including selected musculoskeletal, arterial and metabolic disorders. While serving to bridge previous studies in anatomy and pathology with subsequent podiatry theory subjects, this subject also prepares students for clinical practice through hands-on surface anatomy practical sessions and integration of illustrative case studies throughout the subject materials.
