Of all the sciences, medicine has the most direct connection with human life. It encompasses everything from molecular mechanisms to the personal narratives, beliefs, and feelings of each individual. Sharing Medicine, starting with a series of 7 Viewpoints, tackles the challenge of this vast diversity head-on. The articles in this series summarize how physicians currently share knowledge, skills, and experiences among ourselves as a professional community and with the patients we serve; and in each article the authors suggest some ways in which we might do this better.
