Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine

Welcome to Physical and Rehabilitation medicine course!
Head of the department: Prof. Tonko Vlak, MD, PhD
Course organizer:           Assistant professor Jure Aljinović, MD, PhD
This course is part of Your fifth year. Until now You have learned how to treat acute conditions and diseases but without any information what happens to the patient when he comes home. Re-habilitation and re-integration of the patient into the society after the life changing event such as myocardial infraction, cerebrovascular stroke or implantation of total endoprothesis, is crucial for his/her mental health. Also, decreasing the speed of functional impairment in the patients with chronic rheumatic, neurologic or cardiopulmonary diseases is also the rehabilitation goal of physical medicine.
We will use this course to teach You basic concepts of rehabilitation, measurement of quality of life or disease activity and functional indexes for joint motion. We will provide You with the direct contact with patients that are in need of our help.
The course will be presented in form of lectures (16 hours), seminars (12 hours), and practical clinical skills (17 hours). Attending all forms of teaching is mandatory!
The course is conducted in following locations: lectures and seminars at the School of medicine in Split- Šoltanska 2; while the Clinical practice will be held at three different locations of Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation with Rheumatology ( Firule – Spinčićeva 1 , Križine- Šoltanska 1 and Toplice- Marmontova 4).
