Semiotics a crash course!

Hubert van Doorn

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


Medical Education is founded on a long apprenticeship which includes the habituation of skills in seeking, selecting and understanding patients’ symptoms and signs. Semiotics is the study of signs. The craft of Medicine begins with listening to stories and looking for the presence of absence of clinical signs. How much do we understand the role of signs in what and how we do this?
