Estimated time to complete:

Abstract: 

With a growing number of older adult patients entering the health care system and fewer students and residents pursing geriatric medicine,1,2 it is critical to prepare all medical students, no matter their specialty choice, with the basic knowledge and skills needed to care for the older adult population. 

The Geriatric History and Physical Exam Skills Module was designed to orient pre-clinical medical students to the common screening tools, physical exam maneuvers and common findings relevant to older adult patients.  This highly interactive module also presents pertinent modifications that need to be made when interviewing and examining the population.  The resource is most useful for second year medical students who have been introduced to history and physical exam skills on normal adult patients.  Requiring about 15 minutes to complete, this module incorporates self-assessment questions, radiographic images and high yield concepts for an early medical student.
