Thread 🧵⬇️
The Ambedkar Students' Association collated data from multiple RTI applications and found that students belonging to reserved categories are marked much lower in interviews than those in the general category despite similar marks in the entrance exam.
Some faculties have marked SC, ST, OBC candidates with zero marks, and in extreme cases, seven out of eight interview panelists awarded zero marks for an SC student.

Formulating and appraising your PR (problem representation) is critical to the diagnostic process, and intrinsically welcomes cognitive bias

Work this case with me #MedTwitter

ED calls for admission: “40yo M w pneumonia”

*fist pump* sweet, easy admission

1/
“Fever, cough, dyspnea x2d. WBC 20, triggered sepsis. Got cx, fluids, abx. CXR RLL infiltrate. Needs admission for sepsis 2/2 CAP”

With that PR, slam dunk pneumonia.

100% match for my CAP illness script, don’t even need my dyspnea schema (courtesy of @DxRxEdu @CPSolvers)
#CognitiveBias of premature closure

cognitive load of retaking a full hx on such an “easy admission” 12hrs into call
=
Cutting corners in the name of “efficiency”

So you confirm a preconceived HPI

Fever✅
Cough✅
Leukocytosis✅
CXR infiltrate✅

Community acquired PNA✅
