History Module

Clinical Skills Assessment Program

Instructions

This module provides you with the opportunity to learn about history taking, and to observe and evaluate its content and process. There are two cases: one of a pediatric history and the other of an adult history. Below is a copy of the MIRS for you use while scoring the encounters.

Please note that for the “Yes/No” questions, you are indicating whether or not the question was asked, NOT the patient’s answer the question.
