Young, Mark J.; Poses, Roy M.
Journal of Medical Education, v58 n9 p738-39 Sep 1983
A study to assess medical students' attitudes about the diagnostic value of the history and physical examination, as compared with diagnostic testing, examined attitudes at the beginning of ward rotations and during the clerkship. It was found that students beginning clinical rotations have respect for the value of these procedures and are reinforced in their clinical experiences. (MSE)
