 This is an article about craft, intuition, art, and "feel" vs science. It's an article and book sure to raise a few hackles in the medical community. Perhaps there are some associations to investing.

I believe most physicians practice in a virtually data-free environment, devoid of feedback on the correctness of their practice. They know very little about the quality and outcomes of their diagnosis and treatment decisions.

And without data indicating that they should change what they're doing, physicians continue doing what they've been doing all along.Physicians rely heavily on the "art" of medicine, practicing not according to solid research evidence, but rather by how they were trained, by the culture of their own practice environment and by their own experiences with their patients.
