Template: History and physical examination
  • Vivian C. McAlister

This simple template contains the headings for a classic history and physical examination report. Clerks and residents on our surgical team are encouraged to use it or a similar system. It is vital to the learning process that you reach a conclusion about a patient's illness and formulate a plan independently. You should verify your findings and care with somebody senior to you on the team.
