from Chauvenisms in Medicine
Medicine is a most difficult art to acquire. All the college can do is to teach the students principles, based on facts in science, and give him good methods of work. These simply start him in the right direction, they do not make him a good practitioner – that is his own affair. To master the art requires sustained effort, but his sustained effort is so hard that many give up the struggle in despair. And yet it is only by persistent intelligent study of disease upon a methodical plan of examination that a man gradually learns to correlate his daily lessons with the facts of his previous experience and of that of his fellows, and so acquires clinical wisdom.
ROJoson’s Notes (16jun6):
Problem-based learning is a good method to learn medicine.
