Roberts, Laura Weiss; And Others
Academic Medicine, v71 n11 p1225-32 Nov 1996
Examined the health care needs, practices, insurance status, and concerns of 112 medical students, finding that one-third had informally requested prescriptions or diagnostic tests from medical school faculty and housestaff, and that women more often reported difficulty obtaining health care than men. The majority of students preferred to avoid the dual role of medical student-patient. (MDM)
