abstract

  • Teaching by digression encourages students to learn core clinical science while considering such otherwise neglected areas such as medical values, contexts, habits, and history. Integrating this consideration of the hidden assumptions of medical practice into mainstream medical learning allows students to understand modern biomedicine as a system that is historically, culturally, and socially conditioned.
