The course includes notes and two DVD’s with a variety of normal and abnormal examinations. A practice self-assessment video examination on DVD is also included. These will help in preparation for the videotape portion of the Registry examination. Students take a closed-book examination at the end of the course. This allows students to assess their level of knowledge and to discover any area of study which may require more attention prior to the registry examination.
