Since 2008, the Gait, Arms, Legs and Spine (GALS) Screening Tool is taught to Year one undergraduate medical students at James Cook University (JCU), as part of the clinical skills Musculoskeletal (MSK) examinatin. 'GALS' is a sequence of concise movement that asseses the range of motion of the major joints of the body. The strategies of small group teaching, instructional video, practical demonstration and simulatedvolunteer patients are utilised to teach 'GALS' in the two hour workshop. Written and audio visual resources are available to the students on JCU's online learning platform. Post workshop, students are assessed in an OSCE style assessment. With the dual intention to enhance student learning, and improve short and long term recall, educators created a 'GALS music and dance' video.
