Lecturio has released more than 70 physical exam videos taught by Stephen Holt, M.D., Associate Program Director for Ambulatory Education in the Primary Care Program, Yale School of Medicine. Using live models combined with animations and recall questions, Dr Holt makes all aspects of the physical exam easy to learn and remember.


A physical exam is one of the cornerstones of an accurate diagnosis. A well-performed physical exam can help foster an enhanced physician-patient relationship and improve treatment efficacy. A good physical exam can help reduce unnecessary tests and avoid diagnostic errors. Lecturio’s new physical exam course will help all health care practitioners become more adept practitioners.

“This new physical exam course by Lecturio covers the assessment of a patient’s body from head to toe. Careful history-taking and physical examination are an instrumental part of an appropriate patient workup,” says Dr. Peter Horneffer, Director of Medical Education at Lecturio.
More than 70 video lessons, including the checking of vital signs, and the inspection, palpation, percussion, and auscultation of every major body part, go hand in hand with the medical history and basic laboratory tests.

The lessons consist of assessments involving real-life settings, as well as richly illustrated materials, animations, presentations, and recall questions which build on and reinforce the basic science principles covered in Lecturio’s vast content library.
