Step 2 CS: Writing patient note

Patient note tips:

1. Write the chief complaint in brilliant detail
2. Write findings consistent with diagnosis #1
3. Write findings consistent with diagnosis #2
4. Write "denies" (Negative findings associated with particular dx)

Things I didn't know about writing differentials
1. Use can use negative findings to support diagnoses
2. You can also use door way information to support diagnoses in PE part

For tests:
1. Write the physical examination you couldn't do first.
2. Write the least invasive test first
3. Write complicated tests last

These tips and amazing feedback was given by my friend, Lyla. Thanks, girl!
