Harold - Psychiatry uses different terminology but of course consideration of biases is a crucial element of training even among more biologically-oriented programs. The only difference is whether it's addressed in terms like countertransference, or with reference to specific cortical/subcortical structures. Remember these folks were thinking about the unconscious long before the rest of medicine.

A bit off topic, but related to Brent Smith’s question about debiasing med students.

I was speaking with our psychiatry clerkship director. It seems that dual-process theory has not made it into psychiatry, in general, let alone a curriculum on decision making (either physician or patient).

Does anyone have experience in bringing together these two magisteria? (There are 5 articles in PubMed [dual-process theory AND psychiatry], most recently
PMID:
25000504.)
