DAOM training for physiotherapists and medical doctors

General introduction
Orthopedic medicine students learn to apply a systematic clinical examination and are trained to interpretate the clinical data. Common pathology in the every day practice is analized and assessed for conservative evidence based therapy.  What clinical symptoms are, for example , found in myelopathy and what exactly are the symptoms of a CAM or PINCER hip? In addition, much attention is devoted to pathology, biomechanics, differential diagnosis and specific joint mobilization, manipulation of joints and soft tissues, muscle strengthening exercises and training of coordination and proprioception.
Input level: students need to have a graduation as physiotherapist or medical doctor

Self-study hours: The number of self study hours averages 100% of the number of contact hours. This depends on prior knowledge.
Teaching method: the theoretical education is given in the form of lectures. Practical training is offered in groups. In addition, case studies will be discussed and practiced in group form.
Number of participants: minimum 15, maximum 30 per group.
Training in Orthopaedic Medicine offers the qualification: Orthopedical Physiotherapist.
 
Training costs
Each module is priced Euro 750,-

Modules can be discussed and planned by appointment.
Custom made courses are possible.
