This poster represents the experience of a clinician-in-training with a diagnostic screening method typically called “review of systems.” Although at times executing this method can feel onerous, it is intended to reveal key symptoms, promote inquiry, and enhance communication. It also sometimes generates unexpected and important insights, and that experience is conveyed here with a combination of text and images.
Hannah R. Abrams is a second-year medical student at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.
