+ - Ask Slashdot: Emergent complexity for a Physician 1

Submitted by Dirac_my_friend
Dirac_my_friend (2866783) writes "I'm studying as a Theoretical Physician and I'm very close to start working on the thesis. I'm fascinated by emergent complexity, such as: the Conway's game of life, bees organization, neural network, complexity economics . I'm asking you either where to read something interesting about or some cool topics you consider useful for a future job/interesting to work on. Any ideas?"

Ask Slashdot: Emergent complexity for a Physician

Comments Filter:
  • I'm a pre-med. I regularly see physicians in the emergency room who over medicate and over test patients to protect themselves from litigation.

    Consider researching about the benefits of an environment where physicians can discuss mistakes they've made without fear of litigation. Perhaps it could result in better medicine and better patient-physician trust.
