JOPA Library of Physical Examination and Injection Videos
Welcome to the JOPA library of physical examination and injection technique videos. This is a place for PAs (and NPs, MDs, and DOs) to share their techniques in their field of expertise so that other PAs can learn new, or fine-tune existing, skills. The videos, which are archived as clickable links for quick reference, show either a physical examination of a specific body region (e.g., a PA specializing in sports medicine may submit a video of his/her shoulder examination) or a particular injection (e.g., a subacromial, knee, or trigger finger injection). Our goal is to collect multiple videos of the same type of physical examination or injection as we understand that there are several ways to perform each.
You can use a cell phone or camcorder to record your physical examination or injection technique video. Make sure to:
- record the video in one take, as it cannot be edited after submission
- inform the patient being filmed that the video will be used for educational purposes
- avoid showing a patient's face or any identifying information. If possible, use a volunteer for physical examination videos.
Please refer to our
guidelines for what to include in each type of video. Videos should be submitted,
without accompanying text except for the title and authors and
with a signed
