Accreditation Check:

The shoulder and shoulder girdle is a complex motion segment of the body. Motion and function at the shoulder is dependent on coordinated motion between the torso, scapula and upper arm. In this course, we will identify the important anatomic structures of the shoulder girdle and demonstrate how their orientation relates to normal function. We will also demonstrate and discuss how pathologic conditions of the anatomy can lead to pain and dysfunction that we often encounter in the clinical setting. With this course, the learner is expected to improve their understanding of shoulder function by developing a deeper understanding of the underlying anatomy which will be supplemented with key clinical corollaries and physical examination findings.

1. Surface Anatomy

Explain the superficial anatomy of the shoulder girdle and connect its relationship to the upper trunk, in addition to how the superficial landmarks around the shoulder help to indicate injury or disease states.

2. 1st layer Anterior & Posterior

Explain the superficial muscular anatomy of the shoulder girdle, and connect how this anatomy relates to the superficial landmarks about the shoulder. Explain how the superficial anatomy influences function of the shoulder.

3. 2nd Layer Anterior & Posterior

Explain the anatomy of the muscles that originate or insert on the scapula. Explain the different planes of motion of the scapula and how they are affected by the peri-scapular musculature, as well as scapula-humeral rhythm and why it is important for shoulder and arm function.

4. 3rd Layer Anterior & Posterior

Explain the anatomy of the rotator cuff and its function, and compare the differences between partial thickness and full thickness rotator cuff tears. Explain the coraco-acromial arch of the shoulder and how it is involved in shoulder impingement, and correlate the various components of glenohumeral joint stability.
