Funded July 2008-June 2010
A unique multi-specialty project that involves collaboration between pediatric rheumatology and orthopedics, whose aim is to teach a broader curriculum of pediatric musculoskeletal medicine to primary care providers, students and residents. These modules will teach a musculoskeletal screening exam and differential diagnostic considerations, as well as modules that focus on aspects of the differential diagnosis (infections, trauma, arthritis and rheumatic diseases, malignancies, etc.), and more focused physical examination skills (the knee, hip, spine, etc.), with each module having orthopedic and rheumatology authors. A collaboration with The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia resulted with an additional series called "Pediatric Musculoskeletal Medicine," housed through their Pedialink® series, which are web-based educational courses on the American Academy of Pediatrics' website.
