When you are doing a review of systems, there is a great template sitting right in front of you.....the patient. Looking at the patient is easier than memorizing a mneumonic in my opinion. Ask about each of their parts. G

you really have been out of school a while eh?...hehe don't you remember how freaked out you were being sent in to interview pts? it helps to have a checklist infront of you as a crutch for a while. i agree that even towards the middle of 4th year most of us didn't use tempates or mneumonics because you are so used to asking the "right" type of questions for the complaint without having to go down your megalomart check list...

That's what I did for the CS as well. I looked at the patient. It is a beautiful template of all the systems. Start from the head and move on down. That mneumonic is worse than memorizing Harrison's. G
