A new paper from our research group to appear in Academic Medicine , a collaborative project with Dr. Goldszmidt (the principle author) and Dr. Bordage, really tried to gather insight into what physicians should be thinking about during a clinical encounter. Specifically, we were interested in the conceptual frameworks used to identify and study these clinical reasoning tasks. The end result is an well-vetted list. We hope this list will drive and influence new research. Read the pre-press version here.
