Mind maps in Medicine


Mind mapping, developed by Tony Buzan, is a method to show information selecting key words or, in Medicine,key signs or symptoms in a graphic way, looking for a better description and an easier way of learning. I have to confess that I,ve never seen this method in the everyday teaching but I think is worth considering…

Starting at the 1 o,clock position of every map you have to move clockwise.The more common features are mentioned first.

I believe that in some situations this methos could be very helpul for teaching and also to improve the clinical reasoning process.
