As seen on Medrants, trial judges go to school to learn about medicine:
Dr. Calvo said the goal is to show judges that most of human biology and medicine is not black and white.
And judges at the first round of classes said they learned exactly that. In addition to acquiring a scientific knowledge base, judges said they learned that understanding physician-patient communication is key to interpreting complex medical cases.
Now, if only there was a course for jurors and lawyers – it would go a long way to solving the acrimonious physician/lawyer relationships.
