The Legal Context for Evaluating and Dismissing Medical Students and Residents.
Irby, David M.; Milam, Steve
Academic Medicine, v64 n11 p639-43 Nov 1989
Medical school faculty cite the fear of litigation as a reason for their reluctance to offer candid evaluations of students' and residents' performances and to dismiss them when necessary. Three legal issues are addressed: fair and equitable treatment, due process, libelous and defamatory performance evaluations, etc. (Author/MLW)
