I wonder if not MDs suffer from much the same thing as many engineers do. They learn the profession and how this works for curing that and that for this, but they don't learn how the scientific method that supports this knowledge works.

In Norway we have an introductory course in philosophy, and the philosophy of science during the first semester of University studies, but this is not brought up again for the rest of the time at the university except in special subjects.
