“Diagnostic reasoning is an essential physician ability and thus one of the most important aspects of medical education and clinical practice, yet it is difficult to teach. By bringing together some of the top medical educators in this field, Teaching Clinical Reasoning provides best practices in teaching diagnostic reasoning to help both teachers and students alike.”

“Teaching Clinical Reasoning … explores one of clinical medicine’s most fascinating questions, which happens also to be a question that is critical for medical education: "What, apart from medical knowledge, is essential for clinical expertise?" Related to that question, of course, and most germane for medical teachers are the questions, "How can teachers 'diagnose' the learner who appears to have adequate knowledge, but who struggles to deploy that knowledge for patient care?" and "How can teachers effectively intervene?" This book explores these questions while providing insight and practical advice for clinical teachers and for program directors charged with introducing the subject of clinical reasoning into the curriculum for students and residents.”
