Development of expertise in physical examination as viewed through Gibson’s theory of perceptual learning.

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review

Abstract

Introduction/background:
Physical examination (PE) uses a series of physical actions to collect information through perception using the senses: tactile, auditory and visual. Many medical schools use checklists to teach and assess PE to medical students which seem to focus students’ learning on physical actions but not perception.

Aim/objectives:
Gibson’s theory on the development of perceptual learning, provides a different perspective which can be used to analyse the impact of current teaching methods on the learning of perception in PE.
