A study of 13,168 graduating medical students explored the relationship between self-reported experiences of verbal abuse during medical school and confidence in their clinical skills. Relationship between abuse and lower confidence levels was significant for all demographic groups and for high and low levels of assuredness. School policies must address the problem of verbal abuse of students. (Author/MSE)
