Helms, Lelia B.; Helms, Charles M.
Academic Medicine, v66 n1 p1-7 Jan 1991
Analysis of 110 state and federal court decisions from 1950-89 involving medical students and undergraduate medical education found 51 percent were disputes over general issues, most concerning admissions and dismissal. Recently, readmission, course repetition, and cheating have been increasingly addressed. Medical schools have generally prevailed over claimants, but litigation has not abated. (Author/MSE)
