Abstract: 

This product is a collection of short tips ready to be integrated into your first or second year medical student curriculum, wherever you teach basic history and physical exam skills (Introduction to Clinical Medicine, Doctoring, etc). At UT Southwestern, we teach these skills during the first year, in a course called the "Colleges." Students are divided into groups of 6 and taught by a faculty mentor for a half day weekly during the first and second years. These tips have been integrating into the weekly sessions-- woven into that day's syllabus and explained/emphasized to the mentors during the weekly mentor faculty development sessions. Our Reynolds program at UT Southwestern is called SAGE (Southwestern Aging and Geriatrics), hence the "SAGE Tips." The same logo is used throughout the curriculum to highlight aging knowledge and skills.

Educational objectives: 

Highlight the differences in the physical examination and history taking of older patients.
