Review of Systems

In case you don't know, the "review of systems" is the laundry list of questions at the end of the medical interview that may tip you off to something you may have missed during the first part of the interview. Docs with little time to see the patient, sometimes gets into "tunnel vision" and, sometimes go down the wrong path. A quick review of systems may help you get back on track.

Above is a video from our new blog buddy Dr. Katie as she is practicing the Review of Systems for class. Ah, the Review of Systems through the eyes of a medical student. I remember how nervous I felt wondering whether I would forget "this" system or "that" system. Anyway, a good review for me. Thanks Katie! (make sure you watch the entire thing - the last 5 secs are GOLD)
