I would like to thank Ram who joined us today and gave us his experience of the stations on how he had approached the 2 stations and managed them.

The point I noted was that in spite of not getting the diagnosis as a first opening statement he was able to secure full marks by discussing his clinical findings and his reasoning to the differential.

I wish to thank Akruti as well who has been joining us and giving us a perspective of the stations from your eyes though with slightlu less anxiety now.

  • The learning points were:
  • Keep the patient in mind when discussing your findings.
  • Practice to finish exam in 5 minutes – you really do have to be quick.
  • Gowers sign in female patients is RARE.
  • Bilateral atrophy / reduced muscle bulk in a child who is walking – be careful.
  • Scar on back – DO NOT miss.
