On the Culture of Student Abuse in Medical School.
Kassebaum, Donald G.; Cutler, Ellen R.
Academic Medicine, v73 n11 p1149-58 Nov 1998
Abuse of medical students is discussed, based on recent national surveys and focusing on the most common forms, belittling and humiliation, which appear to be misguided efforts to reinforce learning. It is argued that use of such aversive methods is likely to foster insensitive and punitive behaviors, passed from teacher to learner and potentially directed toward patients and colleagues.
