About this Unit
In 2012 this unit will be replaced by 400879 - Clinical Assessment Methods. This unit is designed to introduce students to detailed knowledge of physical examination skills and diagnostic techniques necessary for the diagnosis of abnormalities. Because of the significance of the primary contact health practitioner and diagnostician role, it is essential that students become competent at disease presentation, various diagnostic methods, selection of appropriate laboratory tests and interpretation of the findings. This unit will also help students to develop crucial clinical reasoning skills required in the medical decision making process.
