Here is a listing of this article from the Austrialian Association of Musculoskeletal Medicine, and here is an article written about the subject). [Update: My apologies, it seems that the “Australasian Musculoskeletal Medicine” journal was a bogus journal – ghost written by a pharmaceutical company and not peer reviewed.  The subject matter of the article regarding inadequate musculoskeletal competency levels in graduating medical student was the real deal however.  Here is a link to another journal, the Irish Journal of Medical Science, (which is not bogus) that reviews the same subject].
