Each module shows step-by-step examinations with rationales for the clinician's actions and contains expanded discussions of health history taking, interviewing, and describing findings.  Graphics throughout the series illustrate key components of anatomy and physiology.  Patients and actual expert clinicians represent diverse age groups and cultures to reflect realistic practice settings.
