PMEDG 1643: Advanced Lower Extremity Anatomy

Credits 6.5
The purpose of this course is to provide students a firm foundation in the structure of the lower extremity. The course will emphasize a functional and clinical approach to the study of the anatomy of the lower extremity. The anatomical terminology learned will be the vocabulary necessary to understand podiatric surgery, radiology, orthopedics and biomechanics. This knowledge is essential to the podiatrist’s assessment of a patient’s status, and in the interpretation of laboratory and diagnostic tests; and in learning pathology.
