Physician training: the "differential diagnosis" and why it matters to your health

In our book, we dedicate several chapters to discussing the differences in training between physicians and non-physician practitioners. One of the most important elements of physician training is learning how to create a differential diagnosis, which is a list of all the possible causes of a patient’s symptoms.  Today we are joined by Dr. Mercy Hylton, a pediatric emergency medicine physician and who is also an author and a patient advocate, to discuss why physician training - including learning how to properly create a differential diagnosis - is so important.Get the book - now available as an audiobook from Audible and at iTunes:https://www.amazon.com/Patients-Risk-Practitioner-Physician-Healthcare/dp/B08Z4F1JJ6/Physicians:  Join us!  Physiciansforpatientprotection.orgDr. Hylton's articles: An Ode to the Differential Diagnosis -  https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/03/an-ode-to-the-differential-diagnosis.htmlFind more blogs by Dr. Hylton at: https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/post-author/mercy-hylton
