Physical Exam Skills
Considered the center of the healthcare experience, clinical exam rooms are an important, multifunctional space where physicians do more than diagnose and treat. Within these walls, patient trust is seeded, and physicians have the opportunity to develop positive relationships with their patients that can reap rewards for a lifetime.
At WAUSM, our clinical exam rooms give students the opportunity to interact with standardized patients to learn physical exam techniques, as well as integral communication skills that promote diversity and inclusion. Each exam room is designed like a typical physician’s office, allowing WAUSM students to become skilled in patient-physician interactions, while being mentored by faculty in real time.
