This project aims to better understand how physicians engage in clinical reasoning and how different types of contextual factors influence their clinical reasoning performance and self-regulation. In addition to asking participants about how they think about reasoning we will also examine several biometric indicators such as heart rate and blood pressure to examine how participants physiologic responses might be influenced while they are engaging in clinical reasoning. Understanding how contextual factors influence clinical reasoning performance and its self-regulation will help inform new educational interventions to help faculty and physicians learn how to improve their clinical reasoning.
