I see noone has answered this important question! You should conduct a physical
exam in the SAME WAY every time for a couple of reasons:

1. When you are a beginning clinician, it will ensure that you don't miss
anything. This is very important!

2. As you gain experience, doing the exam in the same way each time will allow
you to build a "data base" in your mind so that you begin to recognize clinical
patterns.

As you become experienced, you will have a large internal data base and your
interview will be so well-honed that you will not have to spend as much time
doing the physical exam. You will go right to those measures that are MOST
important.

Cheers!
Kevin
