When revising my lectures for VM601 last year, I started to ponder the nature
of clinical expertise. I reasoned that as a non-clinician, I didn't have
it, and if I understood it, I might be able to better craft the "basic
science" lectures that I teach in the professional curriculum. A review
of the literature turned up a surprising amount of information, which I will
attempt to summarize briefly in this column.
