Mediview: Skills In Medicine

SKILLS IN MEDICINE

Online version
The 'Skills In Medicine' program has been developed to facilitate students in learning how to perform a number of basic medical skills that can take place during a physical examination.

In general these are skills that a student should learn during the Bachelor/Master phase of their medical education.

A large number of diagnostic examination procedures are explained and demonstrated in the video clips. To emphasize the procedure of the skills we have chosen to demonstrate them with people without complaints.

In some sections therapeutic techniques are explained and demonstrated. These sections include ‘Minor Surgery’ and ‘Bandages and Bandaging techniques’.

Future developments will include;

  • basic and more advanced knowledge tests (per section)
  • links to additional information
  • demonstration of skills on patients with complaints
