Initial encounters with patients can often be worrying for medical students in their first clinical year. Fundamental to effective diagnosis is the ability to examine the patient in a systematic manner; these techniques of examination eventually become
absorbed by the student and appear as 'second nature'. But how are they learned? 'Clinical Examination of the Patient' provides a superbly-illustrated sequential guide to patient examination, emphasising points of potential confusion and providing a sound framework for subsequent practical experience. This pocket-sized book is invaluable to the medical student entering the first clinical year and will be re-read before final examinations. It also provides a useful source of information for those in the allied health professions.
