The are several questions we could consider.
What is the role of comprehensive physical examination when cross sectional imaging is widely available? Is the role of physical examination to screen, to comprehensively evaluate or to aid decision making (conservative, operate or discharge)?
How can procedural skills training programs take advantage of the literature from simulation and mastery training literature?

Hybrid model for training physical examination and procedural skills
The purpose of this workshop is to re-examine physical examination and procedural skills training - by evaluating current educational theory, and empirical best practices; and then proposing a hybrid blended training model; by exploring how the eLearning, simulation, and mastery training paradigms can add value and insights to traditional training curricula. We will use three practical scenarios as illustrations and educational practice examples - abdominal physical examination, suturing, and corneal foreign body removal.
