A Practical Guide to Clinical Medicine by UC San Diego

The University of California, San Diego has put a page called "A Practical Guide to Clinical Medicine." The guide will allow the medical transcription student to have an idea on the different examinations or maneuvers conducted during a PE. Each system is discussed here; from the eye exam to the neurological exam. Included in the discussion are topics on the History of Present Illness (HPI) and Vital Signs, as well as a list of commonly used abbreviation in medicine. If the student is interested in getting more resources off the net the website also has a page the lists different medical topics like that on anatomy, cardiology, dermatology, general physical exam, and more.
