PURPOSE: The clinical literature advises physicians not to trust their intuition. Studies of clinical intuition, however, equate it to early impressions, the first thing that comes to the physician's mind. This study aimed to investigate the validity of this perspective by examining real cases of intuition in family medicine. METHODS: Eighteen family physicians were interviewed about patient cases in which they believed that they had experienced an intuition. Cases were included if (1) participants were unaware of the basis of their judgment, or (2) participants talked about the basis of their judgment but believed that it was irrational or unsubstantiated...

Our objective was to develop a standard list of required procedures for family medicine residencies. METHODS: The Society of Teachers of Family Medicine Group on Hospital and Procedural Training convened a working group of 17 family physician educators...
