Clinical thinking is the way of clinicians judge, evaluate and make decisions about patient disease. One fact that all clinicians in different clinical departments received the same or similar medical education in medical universities suggests medical knowledge is necessary for clinical thinking and routine work. At present, in medical universities, the connection of each basic medical course and its binding with clinical knowledge is not clearly proposed, at least in China. Thus makes students cannot set up a knowledge frame composed of basic and clinical knowledge based on their intrinsic connection, thus resulting in non-organized medical knowledge on which clinical thinking is hardly constructed. A well-organized medical knowledge frame in the basement of correct clinical thinning.
