Core Rotation: Sports Medicine and Musculoskeletal

Location: Kaiser, Vista Family Medical Center

Care of musculoskeletal injuries is central to the experience of a family physician. The curriculum is designed to provide residents with extensive skill in caring for a wide range of musculoskeletal complaints. Residents learn physical diagnostic techniques and how to manage sprains, strains, fractures, etc. while working alongside family physicians, sport medicine trained specialists, foot & ankle surgeons, and orthopedic physicians and physicians assistants. In addition, our residents get valuable exposure to the complimentary care of musculoskeletal issues by attending a variety of high yield physical therapy classes, working with a community chiropractor, and participating in a series of osteopathic musculoskeletal workshops and clinics.
