The Interactive Guide to Physical Examination


The Interactive Guide to Physical Examination, developed by the Department of Family Medicine, is a new learning tool designed to introduce students to the fundamental principals of physical examination. Incorporating more than 40 digital photos, video and audio clips, and colorful, multimedia elements, the Interactive Guide brings alive the sights, sounds, and “feel” of the physical examination with the click of a mouse. For additional information about the Interactive Guide, view an in-depth article.
