Yedidia, Michael J.; Berry, Carolyn A.
Academic Medicine, v74 n5 p532-38 May 1999
Study of 394 physicians graduating in 1989 from six New York medical schools found that certain residency-training factors had sustained effects on physician behavior in caring for AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) patients, but not on the number of patients treated. Determinants of treatment practice included residency environment, faculty characteristics, cynicism about patient care, social biases, and AIDS-related attitudes. (Author/MSE)
