November is not only the anniversary month of Riga Medical College of the University of Latvia, but also a rich period of virtual mobilities. In current academic year we had the pleasure to host our third Erasmus+ Virtual Teaching Mobility. For two days between November 23 – 24, a Lithuanian lecturer Mr. Martynas Ramanauskas from Klaipeda State University of Applied Sciences delivered online lectures to students representing Massage and Hydrotherapy study programme. The online teaching programme was very broad, including:

  1. The Basics of Upper Extremities Clinically Kinesiology.

-Osteokinematics, arthrokinematics, functional kinesiology and pathophysiology of the upper extremity
