The third edition of Pediatric Clinical Skills is
a thorough treatment of the subject matter. The core chapters cover examination
of the various body systems, reviewing normal findings and discussing normal
variants and abnormalities.
None of the material on abnormalities is intended to replace a comprehensive
discussion of disease states but rather serves as an introduction and leads
the examiner to consider diagnoses during examination. The text introduces
basic history-taking skills, with particular focus on the family interviewing
necessary in pediatrics. It also addresses interviewing with sensitivity to
the older child and adolescent patient.
