Seminar description:

Basic medical knowledge is of great importance to non-BIG-registered healthcare professionals (therapists). Physical examination is an important tool for therapists, not only to understand anatomy and pathology, but also in recognition of so called red flag conditions.

Shenzhou Open University of TCM organizes a set of seminar days on physical examination.

The topic of seminar Physical Examination part 2 is the locomotor system.

This seminar Physical Examination part 2 can be followed as a single item, without having previously attended to the seminar Physical Examination  part 1.
