About The Study: In this study including 33 physicians across 17 specialties who generated 284 medical questions, chatbot generated largely accurate information to diverse medical queries as judged by academic physician specialists with improvement over time, although it had important limitations. Further research and model development are needed to correct inaccuracies and for validation. 

Authors: Douglas B. Johnson, M.D., M.S.C.I., and Lee E. Wheless, M.D., Ph.D., of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, are the corresponding authors.
