Academic stuff

cropped-cropped-IMG_1462.jpgKnowledge is expanding exponentially. Gone is the time when a doctor who knew 12 causes of splenomegaly was better than the one who only knew 6 causes. There are two factors that have risen to the forefront

  1. Knowing where to find information.
  2. The ability to put that information into clinical practice.

Knowledge can be found easily on the Internet. However the age old saying “what the mind does not know, the eye will not see”

Application to clinical practice is a more subtle art. It is the ability to apply weight to different clinical factors to arrive at a clinical diagnosis… Eg you would come to different clinal diagnoses in these two scenarios…a) A 2 year old presents with a swollen knee. B) A 90 year old presents with a swollen knee..this is a crude example of applying weight age to the same clinical scenario to arrive at different diagnoses..

  1. Come across a question you are not sure about or any concepts that you want to clarify.. Go on ask
  2. share any thoughts?

Have some fun
