A randomized trial of physicians and physical therapists as instructors of the musculoskeletal examination.
To evaluate the effectiveness of physicians vs physical therapists as instructors of the musculoskeletal examination to second year medical students.
A randomized trial conducted over 3 consecutive years in a physical diagnosis course at The University of North Carolina.
During the first (baseline) year, medical students received education about the musculoskeletal examination from a lecture and supervision by clinical preceptors.
This increased in the second and third (intervention) years where random halves of each class received supplementary clinical instruction which included a structured manual, a videotape, and supervised practice with either general internal medicine physicians or physical therapists.
