This video tutorial teaches a comprehensive approach to cranial nerves examination. It is part of the MedPrep video tutorial series: http://www.medprep.in/clinical-examination-videos.php
On YouTube, the MedPrep video tutorial series has received nearly 24,000 hits.
The video series features myself, Sohaib Rufai, third year medical student at the University of Southampton, along with Iftkhar Hussein, an Economics student at the University of Manchester playing the patient, and Fahad Khan, a Clinical Sciences student at the University of Bradford, filming. The videos were then edited by myself.
The aim was to produce a useful video series that is easy to follow, at times adding a bit of humour. The patient also put in extra time at the gym especially for the videos.
The MedPrep website has been developed by a group of us at University of Southampton, aiming to provide free useful learning aids for medical students.

The ability to carry out a thorough and slick cranial nerve examination is something every medic needs to master. This video aims to give you an idea of what's required in the OSCE and you can then customise the examination to suit your own personal style.
We spend a lot of time and effort both filming and editing these videos, so we hope you find them useful!
This video is part of a series of OSCE video guides which can be found at www.geekymedics.com or alternatively at http://www.youtube.com/user/geekymedics123
Remember that what these exams involve and how they are carried out differs between medical schools, so always follow your local guidance.
