Abstract

Improvements in medical student physical examination skills and performance on validated musculoskeletal competency examinations correspond with undergraduate curricular reform. Curricular reform success in the United States has been achieved by multidisciplinary collaboration. International efforts are focused on improving medical student physical examination skills through patient partners and structured clinical examinations. Technologies such as simulators and online learning tools are effective and well received.
