The teaching of history-taking and diagnostic thinking: description of a method.

Abstract

This paper describes the use of short videotaped doctor-patient history-taking encounters, which demonstrate the generated-hypothesis-verifying (GHV) method of enquiry. We urge that this method be taught formally to medical students, to complement the classical 'rigid' method of history taking.
