RCGP to discuss 'feasibility' of reflections in light of Dr Bawa-Garba case


Medical curriculum in UK is now replaced with reflections as opposed to learning and studying real knowledge based medicine. This is a safety concern issue, as the new doctors are ill equipped knowledge wise to tackle practical medical problems instead they prefer to stand aloof reflecting, reflecting and writing pages on reflections. I once asked my student to name 10 differential diagnoses of an Inguinal lump. He stood looking puzzled and then told me he will reflect on that and get back to me.
