There is an estimate that medical knowledge doubles every three months, that's an exponential growth that you can never really catch up.
Really it's not about knowledge doubling it's actually data and information doubling. What you need to do is turn that data into actual knowledge. There are multiple ways to do it. One of the ways is to make sure that the information that you're taking in is applicable.
