Who is more knowledgeable? The physician who remembers more diagnostic tests than any other physician or the physician who is the quickest and most savvy at online searching for the relevant tests?

This story taken from athletics suggests that we are going to be uncomfortable with some of the answers to these questions for many years to come.
