Cullinane, Paula M.; And Others
Academic Medicine, v72 n1 p48-50 Jan 1997
Surveyed 370 first-year medical students concerning family violence of which 38% reported a history of personal abuse; only one-third of these were well-informed about family violence. Women felt more strongly than men about need for violence education. Students reporting a history of violence more strongly favored violence education and advocacy roles for physicians, and reported more suicidal thoughts. (MSE)
