This blog is based on the premise that just because something has always been done a certain way, it doesn’t mean that it’s the best or only way to do so. This is especially true in medicine, in which the hierarchical culture and emphasis on learning by apprenticeship mean a certain teacher’s quirks get institutionalized for better or worse. Evidenced is a blog about changing the system by changing the culture, so that we all get better, because better doctors are better for patients.
