Doorway Information Sheet

The doorway information sheet contains a brief statement of the patient’s reason for visit (similar to a nurse’s note), as well as the patient’s vital signs, and instructions to evaluate and treat the patient in 14 minutes “as you see fit.”

Information such as the patient’s vital signs should be accepted as accurate for the patient. Candidates may desire to recheck the patient’s vital signs if the case warrants the physician confirming them, but are advised to always consider the numerical values listed on the doorway information sheet as accurate for the purposes of formulating the differential diagnosis/problem list or evaluation and treatment plan.

Any additional information provided in some cases such as relevant x-ray reports, lab results, or EKGs will be found on this sheet as well.
