This course is a collection of three cases involving the cervical spine presented in “rounds” style, where a resident presents the case to faculty for discussion. The cases will review differential diagnosis, examination, intervention, and prognosis for patients with various presentations of neck pain. Test items and small lectures are interspersed to help integrate concepts and highlight key content.
