Primer on the Mental Status Exam

If you’ve learned about the mental status exam, but feel swamped by its vocabulary or if the thought of administering one is panic-inducing, this module is for you! Live-drawings and mnemonics will help sort it all out in your mind, and rapid-fire review of terms given descriptions of patient presentations will make that instant recall a breeze. Finally, get some “real-life” practice with pre-recorded simulated patients – you’ll even get to write notes!
