  1. Nice. It would be interesting to see what the beginning medical students think of the additional symptoms used by the senior students.

    In addition, it would be cool if a symptom matrix could be converted into a causal network with the ability to zoom in on particular diseases (e.g., GURD also leads to chest pain). I was thinking of producing such a matrix when studying for my EMT-B test, but a weighted causal network would even be better.
