$100 Enroll

Full course description

Telemedicine is a fast-growing care delivery model, being used to remotely care for patients and perform remote consults over video. Its use is growing significantly and will be part of future medical practice. Despite its growth, there has been some provider hesitation in utilizing it in patient care due to the misunderstanding that an effective exam cannot be performed.

This one hour educational course will demonstrate how the physical exam can be accomplished over telehealth, give the learner some creative ways in which physical exams can be done over video visits, outline which complaints can be treated, and how to think differently about our physical exam practice. At the end of the course, the student will be able to understand how to do an effective physical exam over telehealth and go forward utilizing it in their clinical practice.

This course will demonstrate how to do six common exams over a video visit including:

  • Head, Eyes, Ears, Nose and Throat Exam
  • General and Cardiopulmonary Exam
  • Genitourinary and Abdominal Exam
  • Musculoskeletal Exam
  • Neurological Exam
  • Skin Exam
