Good examination skills are vital for clinical practice. This series of videos provides an examination technique approved by a consultant from the relevant specialty in conjunction with guidance taken from the core examination text Macleod, as recommended by numerous UK medical schools. These videos are also recommended viewing for medical educators. We aim to provide a standard to which all those involved with teaching examination techniques can refer.

We recommend that these videos are used both as a preparatory tool prior to patient contact and for consolidation purposes.
