This section will be performed by the teaching staff on the patient being examined as a clinical case and among the students with the support of tutors, in order to acquire and properly understand the techniques being examined.
For the practical exercises, all the tools you need for a clinical assessment and treatment setup are made available, starting with teaching tests, administering international assessment scales and computerized patient monitoring reports.
During the course, students have the opportunity to see for themselves everything that revolves around shoulder surgery, from the diagnostic framework to surgical technique, from the different types of access to the analysis of the dedicated equipment, acquiring the necessary information to make the right choices in the post-surgical treatment of the patient, receiving all-round shoulder training.
The objective of the course is to train students to acquire the correct programmatic approach to the shoulder.
From understanding the appropriate diagnostic framework to knowing the assessment criteria that are essential for the medical team to be able to make a diagnosis. From the ability to administer tests and assessment scales in order to provide an objective for the rehabilitation outcome.
At the end of the course, the student should gain knowledge of the principles of biomechanics, functional shoulder anatomy, pathology and the appropriate preservative approach to formulate the most appropriate rehabilitation strategy.
The course focuses on knowledge of surgical technique, the procedures of the reference medical team and the challenges that each technical act may present to adequately prepare the rehabilitation professional for a complete approach to a post-surgery patient.
To enable the appropriate acquisition of these skills, the course uses a Live Surgery program in collaboration with Concordia Hospital, where Dr. Giovanni Di Giacomo will show selected clinical cases, as well as a training internship at our facilities for a detailed understanding of the rehabilitation choices for the patient.
