Studying diagnosis 'in the wild' is not impossible, but it certainly
presents challenges.  Another approach, far more controllable and largely
eliminating the risk of hindsight bias, is to study the process
proactively, using simulation.  Here's a pioneering study in that direction
by Daniel Nystrom and colleagues:

*Virtual Patient Simulation: A Method to Study Diagnostic Process as an
Emergent Aspect of Information Sampling Behavior*
