In the past century, the amount of scientific information has grown tremendously in every field of education, due to the increase in science production and data accessibility that Internet has been able to provide worldwide. It is expected that medical knowledge double in a period of time as short as merely 73 days in 2020, ac-cording to Prof. Peter Densen ́s predictions in 2011, addressing the problem of how to keep it up during medical graduation . He stated that a student starting medical school in 2010 will experi-ence nearly three doublings in knowledge by the time he/she com-pletes minimal training needed to practice medicine. Graduates in 2020 will have to cope with four doublings in knowledge.
The expansion in medical information is a burden even heavier to senior physicians, working on a daily face-to-face contact with patients, regardless the specialization. A great majority of them practice in areas far from large urban centers and famous univer-sities, for whom the access to refreshing courses and conferences might be extremely troublesome. On the other hand, a number of medical societies try to fulfill such gap by publishing guidelines and recommendations about specific clinical conditions, that bring valid data based on the best available research and practical exper-tise . Truth must be said; they have actually been doing great so far! Numerous healthcare professionals, patients and even in-surance companies benefit from it. The problem is that not every medical question faced by physicians in the real world can be an-swered by institutional guidelines. And worst, such recommenda-tions can be wrong!
