This expert-led annual course uses a blend of didactic presentations, case studies, panel discussion and hands-on skills training to enhance physicians’ care for patients with physical injuries or age-related limitations. This year’s topics focus on shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand injuries commonly seen in family practice.


At the end of this course, learners will be equipped to:

  • perform an upper extremity joint physical exam that will enhance the clinician’s ability to determine the etiology of upper extremity injury
  • practice functional upper extremity joint assessment and special tests to enhance diagnostic acumen
  • indicate the role and limitations of imaging studies in the evaluation of upper limb MSK injuries
  • identify provincial resources for treatment and management of MSK conditions and injuries
  • demonstrate common rehabilitation approaches for soft tissue injuries
