The Course in Clinical Anatomy of the Musculoskeletal System wants to provide continuous learning on the topics related to the anatomical and pathological aspects of the systems treated, with particular focus on finding and assessing clinical and medical-legal issues. The main purpose of the Course is providing further valid tools to be used in the different forensic fields (e.g. abuse, sudden death, medical liability, personal injuries and damage), to improve the identification of the physio pathological path that leads to death, the identification and assessment of medical errors, the estimate of any damage caused, especially in the case of multi-factor pathologies.

The Course in Clinical Anatomy of the Musculoskeletal System covers the following topics: anatomical and pathological aspects, diagnostic imaging, damage assessment, physical rehabilitation and surgical aspects of the systems treated.

It explores clinical anatomy, physiopathology, diagnostic imaging, treatment of the relevant systems, and review of the morpho-functional conditions of the same. It provides a basis for integration with the most frequent pathologies in clinical practice, by tackling diagnostic imaging, surgical treatment, physical rehabilitation, and damage assessment aspects.

The Course in Clinical Anatomy of the Musculoskeletal System is addressed to medical anatomists, orthopaedics, physiatrists, medical examiners, plastic surgeons, sports doctors, general physicians, anaesthesiologists, radiologists.

The Course helps to coordinate the operation of all the specialists involved in these units, and is therefore addressed to all specialist doctors.

The program of the Course in Clinical Anatomy of the Musculoskeletal System is divided into the following modules:

  • ANATOMY 1: medical anatomy of the musculoskeletal system, osteology, arthrology, myology.
  • DIAGNOSTICS: clinical, instrumental and lab diagnostic basis, diagnostic imaging.
  • PHYSICAL AND SURGICAL TREATMENT: fundamentals of rehabilitation and surgical treatment, physiatry, orthopaedics, reconstructive surgery, surgical anatomy.
  • OCCUPATIONAL MEDICINE: implication of occupational medicine, workplace ergonomics, damage assessment.
  • FORENSICS: discussions on case reports, clinical cases, role playing.
  • ANATOMY 2: clinical and surgical anatomy updates.
  • HANDS-ON PRACTICE: dissections.

The general ranking of merit for the academic year 2023/24 will be published on the Italian page of this Master according to the timing provided in the Call.
