As the computer becomes a more common mode of medical education, the Internet and the CD-ROM will become major information sources. A frequent memory of my physical diagnosis course during medical school was the vast amount of material that I wanted to learn, but which required four to six texts around my desk to capture the pathophysiologic findings in my mind. Some books had pictures, some had graphs and diagrams, and most had text, but no book had it all. Clinical Examination brought back this memory and captures the essence of what I wanted for my physical diagnosis course in medical school.
