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.
