What I learned in Med School: Musculoskeletal


I conceit it would be informative if I started a “series” forward my blog titled “What I well-informed in Med School” for every stop up we have. This series is obviously not tot~y inclusive, but more of an overview of grave take-aways. Since our first stop up was basically just undergraduate classes at a faster degree of progress to make sure everyone had the identical foundation no matter what their preceding major was, I won’t conscious doing a post for it. Musculoskeletal was our before anything else medical school system to cover and I truly enjoyed it! So here it!

What I expert in Med School: Musculoskeletal (MSK) System

This stop focused on anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and pathology of the muscles and bones of the human visible form. We also began our dissections of our cadavers this block. 

What I learned:

There wouldn’t have existence doctors if people didn’t donate their bodies to learning. I’m so thankful to whole of the amazing donors and their families with regard to giving us this opportunity to learn. 

The brachial plexus does be, and it is just as complicated since it sounds. It also looks no part like the picture in the books!

The number united most predictive factor for osteoarthritis is a foregoing injury to the area

Long degree of remoteness running can cause lots of demure damage to your knees and joints athwart your lifetime (ugh…)

Mechanism of detriment is everything for sports and trauma allied injuries. Taking a patients history is sooo serious!

Sawing off a cast isn’t of the same kind with scary as it seems. The proverb won’t even cut through skin supposing that not it’s left in one fault for a long period of time, I had none idea! 

Kids heal FAST – bones, muscles, everything.

Anatomy practicals are hard – especially at the time that only given a short amount of time to meditate. The pressure can break you! 

When a football stage-~ is injured and the group of trainers runs onto the room, the first person to check the play-actor out is generally an orthopedic surgeon (at in the smallest degree for our college team) 

Joint replacements be in action and can drastically improve a patients kind of life, even when they are comparatively young. 

Your vertebral column is the elucidation to everything. Well not really, only mal-alignments here can effect soo multitude other things you would never reckon upon. 

We have an incomprehensible footing of muscles in the bottom (plantar sect) of each foot.

So there you be the subject of it, what I learned from MSK stop! I look forward to learning judt a pair more things in Block 3! 😉
