Expert diagnostician, Dr. Gurpreet Dhaliwal, again joins The Curbsiders to dive deeper into the topic of clinical expertise. Topics include, and are mainly focused on, Dr. Dhaliwal’s “training regimen:” feedback, simulation, quizzing, learning from consultants, and how to read the medical literature as a clinician. While we found this episode to be incredibly useful (and entertaining to record), don’t let our bias sway your opinion! In fact, just listen to the episode and listen for practical advise on how to improve your own clinical acumen.

Dr Brigham’s comment: Be forewarned, much of what we talk about is seemingly common sense, but, upon listening to the episode many times, I realize that we have, over time, overly complicated the fundamentals of expertise. I’m just as guilty as the next physician.
