20NESIM015 - Physical Assessment Review

Description

This intensive, two-day course is designed to review basic anatomy and physiology and refine previously learned, hands-on, assessment skills and culminates with student demonstrations of an adult physical examination. In each system, a representative selection of abnormal findings will be discussed. The unique aspect of this course is the guidance provided through lecture and demonstration by the instructor, and the supervised return demonstration of the physical exam process by the participants using the four basic skills of assessment: Inspection, Palpation, Percussion, and Auscultation.

This program is being offered in cooperation with the UNC-CH School of Nursing.
