Bates' Visual Guide: Updated Videos


The Galter Library is pleased to offer Bates’ Visual Guide to Physical Examination with completely reshot content and new clinical skills videos. Previously, the content was available as a series of streaming videos, which, because of some technical limitations, did not offer the best viewing experience. The new Bates’ Visual Guide delivers head-to-toe and systems-based physical examination techniques and features more than 8 hours of video content. While compatible with all major browsers, it is recommended that you have the latest browser version to ensure an optimal viewing experience. The videos can also be viewed on smartphones and tablets.

Lynn Bickley, MD, author of Bates’ Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking, served as advisor to the project, ensuring the clinical content and its evidence-based origins were maintained. Dr. Bickley also worked with the professionals and actors therein to present a “patient-first” approach to the physical exam.
