The Characteristics of Early Diagnostic Hypotheses Generated by Physicians (Experts) and Students (Novices) at One Medical School.
Sisson, James C.; And Others
Journal of Academic Medicine, v66 n10 p607-12 Oct 1991

Analysis of number, specificity, and breadth of diagnoses found students generated significantly more diagnostic hypotheses and more specific hypotheses, but breadth did not differ significantly.
