This course uses lectures and laboratory activities to build the physical examination skills required of physician assistants to beginning clinical rotations. Instruction will introduce the information needed to understand illness and inquiry experienced by persons across the lifespan, the structure and skills required to identify and document the physical manifestations of disease during the physical exam, and the relationship between anatomy, physiology and the pathophysiologic changes occurring within major body/organ systems as a result of illness and injury.
