The status of heuristics and cognitive biases as a source of diagnostic errors.

Vinita,

Your piece is wonderful.  Your ending “So, although a doctor who gets the diagnosis right every time makes for good TV drama, in the real world, the truly “good doctor” is one who makes mistakes, acknowledges them, and learns from them.” is perfect!!!  Premature closure on the wrong diagnosis, and other cognitive mistakes are actually repetitive,  boring stories that have little intrigue…perhaps that is why they haven’t made a TV show about it.  

Thanks for sharing!
