13. SYNOPSIS This course introduces students to basic clinical skills examination. Demonstration of history taking and systematic examination of the body followed by examination by the students will be performed. This includes basic bed side procedures. The course will be conducted in the clinical skill laboratories. The teaching and learning methodologies include interactive lecture, demonstration by lecturers and hands-on practical sessions. Students will be assessed through formative assessment on the following week after the lecture and hands-on practical session. They will be given a Pass or Fail grade based on their attendance and a set list of criteria.
