Despite increasing numbers of consultations being held it is difficult to find them and know what’s going on. This website has send up an RSS feed so a reader can be used to keep up.

“Despite the book’s title its first mandate is the spoken art of history taking: the importance of an accurate one, the perils of a poor one, and the inexcusable “poor historian”. The most inspiring doctors have breathtaking vision, one moment passively surveying the patient’s entire human condition, the next seamlessly zooming in to the minutiae of their pathology. That is what places this book among the greats, as it trains the reader’s eye to share the same vision. If you wish to pass clinical exams, excel in the teaching of examination skills, and know your Schirmer’s test from your Schober’s, I would strongly recommend this book.”
