Clinical Examination course


Clinical college examination course

This course was held on April 15 and 16, 2011

The aim of the course was to demonstrate clinical examination methods, and for the examiners to tell potential candidates (registrars aiming to write the college exams presently, or within a few years) what to expect in the final exam.

Download an ISO image of these mp4 files. The image should autoplay, once you have burned your disc (see below). If you have this feature disabled, run autorun.exe or fire up your browser and navigate to index.html on the root of the disc.

Friday April 15th 2011: The videos taken of clinical examination techniques will also be placed here (when they are edited).When all material is processed I will compile an ISO image you can download, and then burn to your own CD.

Monday April 18th 2011: The screen cast vireos are all loaded into the table above. I have produced an ISO image of them. Download it (150 MB) and burn to a disc. Your disc writing software should be able to burn an ISO by merely double clicking on the image (ClinicalExam.iso). If not, read your software help /manual as how to burn an ISO image. It is not quite the same a merely copying it to a CD!.

Wednesday April 27th 2011: Some of the video clips are editited. I have posted them on the next page. Ian Robertson.
