Orthopaedic Posting

Not much to say about orthopaedic posting.

1.Textbooks suggested by lecturers are:
a) Apley's System of Orthopaedics and Fractures (the big book)
b) Apley's concise System of Orthopaedics and Fractures (don't buy this book, apley's system of ortho and fractures is ....more updated, but still there is not much of basic things inside the big book, this is what my friend and I noticed) 
c) Illustrated Orthopaedics (try to look for this book, I photostated from seniors)

2. Something new for orthopaedics is bascially the physical examination. You will have...
a) Spine examination
b) Peripheral Nerve Examination
c) Shoulder Examination
d) Hip Examination
e) Knee Examination
f) etc...

When we were in Terendak, we requested an extra class from Dr. Zafry. I love the clinic session in Terendak, you are allowed to clerk cases there and of course, you can do the physical examination after you ask the permission from the patients. :)
