United States Clinical Skills Assessment
You can use the examination table extension when the patient reclines. If you ask a patient to get off the examination table, offer assistance. Look for physical findings. Tell the patient your initial impressions and your plan for the diagnostic work-up. Ask for and answer any additional questions.
In paediatric encounter, the child will not be available. So, you are not expected to conduct physical examination.
Note the time warning for 5 minutes remaining in the encounter. Close the encounter when the "End of Encounter" signal is given.
