Did your doctor follow the 10,000 hours rule?

Rabbi Daniel Lapin has advice for people who need to choose a doctor, a lawyer, a plumber or another qualified professional: See how much time they’ve invested into their work.

While people can be trained in a field through education, it’s the experience they gain from actively working in that field that is the true test. In his book “Outliers,” researcher and author Malcolm Gladwell created the “10,000-Hour Rule,” the theory that people who have the right opportunities and invest 10,000 hours into their field will become the best at it.

When it comes to choosing the expert to monitor your health or fix your plumbing, it should be the person who has invested the most time into the profession, Rabbi Lapin asserted.
