New patients get the traditional History and Physical Exam (H&PE) with assessment and plan.
The follow-up presentation differs from the presentation of a new patient.It is an abridged presentation, perhaps referencing major patient issues that have been previously presented, but focusing on new information about these issues and/or what has changed.
The attending physician will ask the patient’s permission to have the student present their case. After making the proper introductions the attending will let the patient know they may offer input or ask questions at any point. When presenting at bedside the student should try to involve the patient.
