Cultural Diversity & Ethnic Minority Psychology, v7 n2 p139-51 May 2001
The attitudes of medical students of Indian decent (N=150) toward treating minority clients and using alternative therapies were assessed in relationship to the students' ethnic identity, acculturation, and self-concept. Students with strong ethnic identity and acculturation were more likely to treat minority patients and use alternative therapies. Discusses implications for client-clinician cultural matching. (JDM)
