Congratulations to Joe Rencic and colleagues for this important article on teaching clinical reasoning in US med schools.  A survey of clerkship directors with a high response rate found that less than half of schools have a formal curriculum on clinical reasoning, and that 80% were dissatisfied with student reasoning competency at the end of the clerkship.

This is an area where SIDM is highly engaged and trying to improve the current state of affairs.  Most of the authors of this paper are members of SIDM and the SIDM Education Committee.  There are many excellent resources for educators on the SIDM website, in particular the items in the Clinical Reasoning Toolkit<>.
