Product description

Pocket Clinical Examination is an introduction to history taking and the examination of patients. It has step by step instructions for the junior medical officer working on the ward for the first time. It aims to provide a solid foundation from which students can develop their own systematic approaches. Details of the mechanisms of symptoms and signs, and comprehensive lists of differential diagnosis are not included but may be found in the larger text Clinical Examination. There is a section on writing and presenting the history and physical examination. PCE provides an introduction to physical examination and a place where students can go for revision before examining patients.
