Three new videos teach clinical skills

ACP recently released the following three educational videos to help internists master common clinical skills:

  • "The Pelvic Examination" demonstrates patient-centered examination techniques and explains how to discriminate between normal and abnormal findings.

  • "The Sports Medicine Musculoskeletal Examination" shows physicians how to examine and treat patients with knee, shoulder or ankle injuries.

  • "Efficiency Through Effective Communication" helps physicians learn communication skills that can make patient encounters in the office more productive.

The videos are part of an eight-title series from the College and range in price from $34.95 to $49.95. Visit Clinical Skills Videos for more information, or call ACP Customer Service at 800-523-1546, ext. 2600, or 215-351-2600 (9 a.m. to 5 p.m., EST) to purchase a video.
