This is the question that inspired me, as a young PT student, to consider pursuing a career in scholarship and teaching physical therapy. I was utterly frustrated by that response and wanted to document what I gained with experience so I could at least articulate to students what happens as you practice for longer periods of time. Since then there is a book and an area of investigation on "Expert Practice" that highlights much of what I discovered over the first few years as a clinician.
As you practice your inductive reasoning improves - a cognitive process associated with creating internal models, generating expectations, and flowing continuously from "information" to "action."
Are there other ways the seasoned clinicians out here might inform students in the classroom or on clinical affiliations what they should expect? Or how can they facilitate the process?

Sean,

Have you read Malcomb Gladwell's Blink-The Power of Thinking Without Thinking?

A good deal of this book is about how expertise grows over time, which I presume is what you're talking about.

Just finished that book, it is very eye-opening. I have always been really good at reading people, and only get into trouble when I don't trust or don't act on my intuition. I especially liked the notion that we can train ourselves to avoid falling prey to the darker side of prejudice and stereotypical quick decisions.
