HBR Article and Podcast

Excited and honored to see my HBR article and related podcast up in lights over at HBR.org! These pieces take the thesis outlined in my Shadow Learning research and test it across numerous industries, types of work and technology. The core findings seem quite similar, though comparing across cases added some new, useful insights and guidelines.

Lively subreddit on Shadow Learning

Genuinely bowled over that my study got 19+k upvotes and a lively discussion on Reddit Science. Many junior surgeons and residents weighed in.

A study has found that junior surgeons need years of training before becoming excellent surgeons. However, with the advent of robotic surgery, the junior surgeon’s practice is significantly reduced, and evidence suggests that junior surgeons don’t acquire the skills they require. from science

WIRED covers Shadow Learning in Robotic Surgery

This wasn’t just a copy-paste job: Matt (the reporter) checked my findings independently. Of course it’s not med students who are getting the terrible training here, it’s residents, but I’m glad Wired decided to talk about this!
