A study by the Department of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Michigan finds that the medical sciences have the most detailed knowledge about human decision-making.
The study was published in the American Journal of Public Health.
The researchers found that medical students had the most information about decisions to make.
They found that students who studied medicine had an average of 7.9 medical school years of decision-analysis experience and 6.6 medical school months of clinical decision-analytics experience, compared to 2.3 medical school weeks and 0.8 medical school days for students who did not study medicine.
Medical students have an average 7.5 medical school and 6 months of decision analysis experience compared to 0.5 and 0 medical school, respectively, for students not studying medicine.
Students who had medical school had an increase of 2.6 months of experience in clinical decision analysis compared to students who had not studied medicine.
The research team also examined data on decisions made by students to determine how much information they had in their heads and how much it was worth to put into the decisions.
The team found that student decisions to be made had more information and that they had an even greater degree of complexity and detail than the decisions made in the medical field.
The data also showed that medical decision makers were more likely to make the right decision in the first place.
For example, a decision to vaccinate a child was more likely than not to be based on medical evidence, the study found.
And, in fact, the researchers say that they are more likely now than they were a decade ago to recommend vaccinations based on their own medical knowledge.
But the researchers also found that there were more than 40 variables that students used to make decisions.
“The decision is more complicated and the complexity of the decision itself is greater,” said Dr. Richard P. Wiese, one of the study’s authors and professor of psychiatry at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of the University at Buffalo.
“In some ways, the medical profession has become more sophisticated in their understanding of the brain and decision making,” he added.
The university said the findings help inform clinical decision making and provide insights into decision-processing and decision-support.
They were part of the medical education program at the school, which has a student body of nearly 3,000 students.
“As we work to make medical decisions based on our medical knowledge and the medical community’s expertise, we can better understand the processes involved in making those decisions,” the university said in a statement.
“We also have the opportunity to learn from other medical students and faculty who are making decisions that could have implications for patients and society.”
