The sections and chapters present the framework of the multimedia teaching aid for internal propaedeutic. The chapters are organised in several relevant sections providing:
   Practical instructions for processing of anamnestic data of the internal patient.
   List of symptoms of important common internal diseases.
   Instruction how to evaluate basic physical examination findings grouped by body system, and supplemented with selected picture or sound documentation.
The intension of the teaching aid presented here is not to replace the classical internal propaedeutic textbook. The objective was to make the orientation in this area of medicine easier for students. It is based on the knowledge of classical examination procedures applied to individual body systems. It provides systematically organized overview of pathological findings with  the data on their most common causes.
The text skeleton of the workbook, divided into 18 thematic sections, is supplemented with our own or borrowed pictorial and sound documentation. An independent part of the presentation is sound record collection of heart murmurs and respiratory sounds, available from the existing presentations on the Internet.
This form of processing (WWW presentation on the Internet) allows for ongoing supplementation, extension, and updating of both propaedeutic data and particularly the picture and sound documentation. One of the objectives of the whole project is, of course, further extension of the illustration material. Its value consists of a clearly organised presentation of picture and sound material, which is usually rather scarce in classical textbooks.
We would like to ask you for your comments, observations and proposed supplementations either using the WWW forms, which are refered at the end of each chapter, or via e-mail address
