About This Workshop

This training module focuses on physical assessment, and the incorporation of pathophysiology and clinical medicine, that is required of prescribing psychologists. Methods of medical history taking, including documentation of pertinent medical history, complete medication information, including past and current medications and drug allergies, chief complaint, determination of vital signs and basics of the physical exam will be covered. Basic laboratory studies that complement the patient visit and care continuum will be introduced.
