I agree completely with Alex, especially as you meet new people and those first impressions, which are often so important, are based on little incidental knowledge things like that.
Especially when we did team clinics... a few PTs and an Ortho or two would do a "grand rounds" type of thing on difficult patients....
good learning for everyone.

Well, I guess I just don't have the capacity to retain all the names of everything I have had to learn in the past ten years. I work in a rural general setting, ortho, neuro, peds, geriatric, you name it. If I were specialized and just dealing with surgeons I am sure I would have "inside out" knowledge of anatomy, but I feel I am able to tell patients exactly what is going on and communicate with the physicians quite effectively. I also use my reference books several times a week. Maybe someday those names will "stick" ;)

Knowing where to look for the information is the most important thing.
Sometimes it is the conviction that we know something we have mis-remembered that is the dangerous thing...

I work in a rural setting also - you never know what type of problem you'll be treating and it is a big array of problems, just as Holly mentions. I hear what you are saying, Jason. The funny thing is that it isn't uncommon for me to see the family physicians looking in a reference to help them with their decision-making process or for clarification. I do get teased because I know I know something but I can't dig it out of my brain... but they are always impressed that I can find whatever it is somewhere - be it an article, reference or some internet thing. And, maybe part of my philosophy has also been shaped by these particular family physicians because they are of the attitude that they "practice medicine" (which means they don't always get things right 100% of the time) and at the end of the day we are all people. I guess to a degreewe are shaped and formed based on the people we hang with... the surgeons I worked with were not as humble as the family physicians worked closely with.

Just another thought on knowing your anatomy. What would you do if your ortho surgeon or family physician came down to your office with a set of films (this actually happens fairly often), plops them up on your view box and says without pointing, "What are your thoughts on the trapezium?"

I guess I would look at the trapezium and give an opinion.
But then again, I know where to find it. :)

I agree, I would know where to find it as well. I guess one would see its orientation to the other carpals adjacent to it as well as the phalanges and see if there are misalignments of some kind.

The best mnemonic IMO is P T's Love Sex However Can't, ToDay or ToMorrow. End up getting the Trapezoid and Trapezium in better order.

I think the trapezium and the trpezoid in the RG is mis placed
