From Marshall and Milikowski – a six-year review of autopsies at a single center: They found a 10% incidence of Type 1 (major) discrepancies between the autopsy findings and clinical diagnoses, well in line with our current estimates of the diagnostic error rate in clinical practice.  With all our marvelous resources for diagnostic testing, these error persist.

And two articles from SIDM members:  Gurpreet Dhaliwal shares his tips on diagnostic excellence in an article attached, and here’s a NEJM CPC authored with Joe Rencic and collaborators:
