Science is the most effective method of understanding how everything around us works, but it’s not w/o its problem. Questionable research & publication practices are not new, but if they are it’s bc of the inadequate and ignorant training we’ve received about how science works.

People are not empathetic, kind, or respectful all the time, they resort to these only when it benefits them.

A reminder that these kind of people still rise to the top and have power over our lives.

Can you imagine going through so many years of schooling and then people claim you lack resilience? 🙄

There are all kinds of ways to drive students with little to no resources out of medicine, but the system doesn’t turn you away until it gets what it wants from you. It’s a costly, time consuming, sacrifice-driven selection process in which one end benefits more than the other.

I wonder if people who deny problem-based learning are aware when they use problems for learning 🤔

Insane how many people swear by the application & medical education process. These are the same people who not only suffer from survivorship bias, they also suffer from being ignorant of their own ignorance due to an inadequate education or willful ignorance due to arrogance.

If physicians are not trained to distinguish science that’s not science, how can they tell the difference between what works & what’s doesn’t work? "If we teach only the products of science w/o its critical method, how can [someone] distinguish science from pseudoscience?"—Sagan

How can physicians know what they do works if they are not trained in statistics and causal inference? There’s no excuse to this level of negligence from the medical education profession. All physicians should be trained to understand statistics for critical appraisal of the lit.

“So it’s not that people are experiencing burnout because they’re weak, or don’t know how to cope with life, or have mental problems. They are dealing with a social environment, in their workplace, that is creating certain kinds of stressors and constraints.”—Christina Maslach

Anonymous? I wonder why…🤔 “A hidden curriculum teaches us not to disturb the status quo. We are trained to defer to authority, not to question it. We depend on powerful individuals and orgs and are taught that success does not often come to those who ask…”

This shows how much disregard medical education has towards teaching science & critical appraisal of the research literature. Flexner recommended for physicians to be trained in scientific reasoning & critical appraisal in his report from 1910 so physicians prescribe what works.

Physician training should include statistics and causal inference, maybe then there’ll be less practice based on just-so stories. The fact that this is still debatable shows how little medical education adopted Flexner’s suggestions on training physicians in scientific reasoning.

Medical education is not science based, most practices followed in medical training have been established to satisfy a dogmatic culture that follows Taylorism, which is pseudoscience of micromanaging people via how efficiently they can move a product (patients) thru the system.
