We chat once again with Gurpreet Dhaliwal, this time about what it takes to become a master diagnostician.  We discuss the main strategies; seeing many cases, deliberate training, getting feedback, closing the loop, and others.

We discuss the importance of the words that we choose to use in our medical documentation.  Words matter! They can generate stigma, and they can bias the decisions we subsequently make as practitioners.

Some of you may have heard of the double tragedy involving Jack Adcock, a six year old who died from sepsis and Dr. Bawa-Garba, a pediatric trainee in the UK convicted of manslaughter in relation to his death and prevented from ever working again. Justice or a clear case of scapegoating? Listen ...

We're back after a long summer break.  Enjoy this episode on uncertainty in medicine.  We talk to Arabella Simpkin, an English paediatrician, working in Boston, who spends a lot of time thinking and writing about uncertainty and our need to embrace it, or at the very least, tolerate it graciously.
