Extra info for Examination Paediatrics, 4e
Visit the hairdresser a couple of days before (and not on the day of) the clinical examination so that it does not appear as though you have had it done just for the examinations. If you have difficulties with perspiration when under pressure, use an unscented antiperspirant on the day of the examination. Apply the antiperspirant to your forehead, hairline and neck to prevent beads of sweat appearing during the ‘viva’ (one of the previous co-authors used this method successfully). Speech training Poor speech will definitely adversely affect your ‘viva’ performance and is surprisingly common.
The history in the majority of cases will provide you with the diagnoses. You must allocate your time with care. Generally, 20 minutes should be spent on the history, 10–15 minutes on the physical examination and the remainder of the time on recording, reviewing and organising the information for presentation. This time spent on organisation is the most important. Making notes is vital. Using a small spiral-bound pad. Using a small card system: numbering the cards, and using headings such as ‘examination findings’.
Candidates who are ‘street-wise’ and naturally confident tend to have little difficulty, whereas their less confident colleagues are left to learn the hard way and eventually succeed or fail. Preparation for the ‘viva’ requires effective communication skills during physical confrontation. Attitudes, interpersonal skills and projection of a confident, professional consultant image can be learned and developed. Mental rehearsal, visualisation, affirmations (see Chapter 4). B ody language. Eye contact.
