PRESENT 5-Minute Podiatry Clinical Challenge - Week 2

Introduction to the PRESENT 5-Minute Podiatry Clinical Challenge

PRESENT has begun a new clinical education series that is unique in that it will take you just 5 minutes each week to participate in it to learn something new.

Every Monday at 11am, you will receive an email containing a link to an interactive blog that will cover one clinical topic. Each topic is contributed by a faculty member including a few from the Western University College of Podiatric Medicine. Topics will be far ranging and diverse including Infection, Tarsal Coalition, Gout, EKG, TMA, Pediatric Torsion, Dermatomyositis, Tinea Pedis, Cellulitis, Contact Dermatitis, and Hallux Fracture.  All of these and more will be covered in the weeks ahead. 

Try a few to see if you agree that this is a pleasant, effective, and easy way to learn something new every week. 

Here is this week's challenge:

This Week's Topic: Tarsal Coalition

If you see enough children, you will encounter this clinical scenario in your practice. You may even see untreated tarsal coalitions in adults. These are patients in whom you can make a huge difference in how their feet function for years to come. Follow this workup, presented by Western University College of Podiatric Medicine Faculty Joseph Park, DPM and see if you agree with the approach he takes to diagnosis and treatment.
