Master the Art of Physical Examinations with our Comprehensive Guide!
Teaching for Impact Clinical Skills Guide: Physical Examinations was designed to address the lack of standardised teaching across Australian medical schools, and to provide a resource that is both comprehensive and easy-to-read.
The book is suitable for those wanting to refine their clinical examination skills, including medical students, junior doctors, and other healthcare professionals. It is an essential resource for anyone who wants to improve their diagnostic skills and provide better quality care to their patients. The booklet is also an excellent resource for both written examinations and OSCE stations.
The book covers a wide range of physical examinations including cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, endocrine, musculoskeletal and neurological examinations as well as more niche topics such as the HINTS exam, GCS and NIH Stroke Scale. Each chapter takes the reader through the examination step by step and includes engaging images and tables detailing clinical signs to look out for and what they may indicate.

Physical examination remains one of the most important tools for diagnosis though is perhaps also one of the most challenging skills to master.
Born out of the absence of standardised teaching across Australian medical schools and the often overwhelming nature of dense textbooks, this booklet aims to provide a comprehensive yet easy-to-read guide on how to perform physical examinations, whether you are a student learning to perform your first exam or a junior doctor looking to refine your skills.
Each chapter takes the reader through a core examination step by step and is complete with engaging images and tables detailing clinical signs to look out for and what they may indicate.
