General description: Intensive, practical 2-day course"Anatomy of palpation" provides comprehensive insight into the identification and palpation of clinically relevant anatomical structures. The course is designed for doctors and physiotherapists who want to improve and refine their palpation skills in patient assessment and thereby better perform therapeutic intervention. During two days, all segments of the body are examined and individual anatomical structures of the musculoskeletal system are analyzed in detail. Course participants are trained to palpate using anatomical models and photo documentation of cadavers.

During palpation, the consistency of the palpable tissue and the temperature, turgor of the superficial tissue (skin) are determined, as well as the physiological mobility and flexibility of the palpable structures are evaluated by palpation, the possible local or reflected soreness as a result of palpation is evaluated.
