For more than forty years, the single-best guide for learning how to become a master clinical diagnostician

Much more than a text describing how to perform a history and physical examination, DeGowin's Diagnostic Examination is unmatched in its ability to help you logically assess symptoms and physical signs to facilitate development of reasonable, testable diagnostic hypotheses.

Part physical examination primer, part differential diagnosis guide, DeGowin's:

  • Describes how to obtain a complete history and perform a thorough physical examination
  • Links symptoms and signs with the pathophysiology of disease
  • Presents a symptom, sign, anatomy, and physiology-based approach to differential diagnosis
  • Facilitates efficient cost-effective diagnostic testing using focused differential diagnoses

Organized as a practical bedside guide to assist diagnosis, DeGowin's is valuable as a quick reference at the point-of-care or as a text to study the principles and practice of history taking and physical examination.
