I’m delighted to speak with Prof Roger Kneebone in this episode. Roger directs the Imperial College Centre for Engagement and Simulation Science (ICCESS), based within the Division of Surgery. Roger co-leads a multidisciplinary research team whose aim is to advance human health through simulation, collaborating closely with clinicians, scientists, patients, and experts outside medicine.
Roger is the expert on experts, having spent a lifetime striving to learn about expertise and in his book Expert: Understanding the Path to Mastery he combines his own experiences as a doctor with insights from extraordinary people and cutting-edge research to map out the path we're all following - from 'doing time' as an Apprentice, to developing your 'voice' and taking on responsibility as a Journeyman, to finally becoming a Master and passing on your skills. And it’s this fascinating book that we discuss on this week’s episode.
