Module Goal

The purpose of the Orthopedics, Rheumatology and Dermatology module (ORD) is to introduce M2 students to autoimmune, orthopedic and dermatologic diseases. Unlike other modules which deal with a one organ system or symptom, this module deals with the three largest organs of the body: skin, bones and connective tissue, or as we say, “skin, bones and everything in between.” The orthopedic, rheumatologic and dermatologic diseases or treatment can affect or manifest disease for at least one of internal organs systems that have been studied.
