Abstract

Keeping one's personal fund of knowledge current is one of the most formidable challenges that physicians face. This article considers a few strategies that may help physicians as they struggle to keep their knowledge up-to-date. Physicians need to develop their own goals for staying current, systematically and periodically search the literature for high-quality material relevant to the topics on their agendas, become facile with critical appraisal of the literature, and schedule time for reading. One of the responsibilities of any professional is to maintain expertise, and this responsibility is probably nowhere more critical, or more difficult, than in the profession of medicine.
