|While I agree with much of what's in this article, I'm not convinced that there can be really any best practices.|
What I mean here, is that in the end, what works here, given the people, the students, etc. may not work there because there is fundamentally different from here. In other words, are best practices truly universal?
Additionally there are politics involved whether we want to admit it or not be they governmental politics or professional practices.
Lastly, we need to keep in mind that not all doctors do the same thing in the same way. Not all doctors, e.g., prescribe the same meds for the same problem.
Why? Because docs are individuals, as are there patients.
This is not to say don't engage in this research, just be aware that all may not be as universal as we might think.
