Medical Report Writing

How proficient are you at medical report writing? As doctors, writing a medical report is a skill we are required to possess.

Often, we’re requested to write medical reports for:

•Insurance companies
•Patient inter-or intrahospital transfers
•Legal purposes

Knowing how to structure a comprehensive medical report is therefore essential. It also demonstrates our:

•Communication skills
•Ability to summarise a patient’s conditions
•Ability to produce differential diagnosis
•Ability to include relevant medical information and physical examination findings
•Ability to provide a plan for continuing management

It also provides an opportunity for us to showcase our critical thinking abilities and comprehension of a patient’s condition.
Particularly for any interhospital transfer, the skill of writing a medical report is of the utmost importance for patient safety, as you the treating clinician, will know a great deal about the patient.
