Hamilton, Thomas E.
Academic Medicine, v66 n1 p39-40 Jan 1991
A survey of 120 medical schools found 61 percent have curricula on professional liability. Many indicated students' training has been compromised or jeopardized by physicians' concerns about medicolegal issues, and many had students named in malpractice suits. Findings suggest issues of professional liability have significantly affected undergraduate medical education. (Author/MSE)
