This book - which is structured to cover each of the human body's systems in turn - will equip you with all the physical examination skills you need to competently and confidently assess, diagnose, develop a differential diagnosis list and plan initial care.

Assuming no prior medical education, but encouraging you to think scientifically and analytically in your approach to patients' presenting symptoms, Chris Mulryan takes you step-by-step through the examination of each body system, illustrating clearly and accessibly a practical model of assessment.

To help strengthen your skills and knowledge base further, each chapter also includes:

- an overview of key symptoms, with a red and yellow flag system to highlight those that require specific and often immediate attention;

- case examples of the most-commonly occurring patient presentations;

- multiple choice and OSCE questions and answers, along with clear learning objectives and outcomes, so that you can audit your developing examination and assessment skills.
