Alcohol and Drug Abuse in Medical Education.
Galanter, Marc, Ed.
This book presents the state of the art of American medical education in alcohol and drug abuse, and is the culmination of a four-year collaborative effort among the medical school faculty of the Career Teacher Program in Alcohol and Drug Abuse. The first part contains reports, curricula, and survey data prepared for the medical education community, focusing on drug abuse and alcoholism teaching in medical/osteopathic schools, a course on alcoholism for physicians, the Career Teacher Program and Resource Handbook, and the role of substance abuse attitudes in treatment. The second part is the proceedings of the National Conference on Medical Education and Drug Abuse, November 1977. The conference sessions address issues such as: (1) the physician's role in substance abuse treatment; (2) physicians' use of drugs and alcohol; (3) drug abuse questions on the National Board Examinations; and (4) an overview of the Career Teacher Program activities.
