MusculoSkeletal Muscle's origin/insertion not high yield!

HY Gross anatomy doesn't concentrate on the muscles as origin, insertion,... is it really that we don't need this stuff for USMLE??

Hmm, good question. I haven't seen a single question on that in UW, Qbank or NBME. The muscle questions are mostly on action and innervation, so if something is injured what would the defect be.

Well that's probably due to the fact that muscles of the back can be as simple or as complicated as you make it. Most surgeons I know who operate on the back don't know them too well anyway just because they are hard to separate surgically. The concept of erector spinae group is more important than knowing individual units according to them.
