Laws of Medicine

Doctors and patients have to make complex decisions using imperfect information based not on facts, but “the spaces that live between facts.”

  1. Priors: A strong intuition is much more powerful than a weak test
  2. Outliers: The outliers point to systematic flaws in our understanding.
  3. Biases: For every perfect medical experiment, there is a perfect human bias.
