Humiliation tops list of mistreatment toward med students

2 septiembre 2014

Each year thousands of students enroll in medical schools across the country. But just how many feel they’ve been disrespected, publicly humiliated, ridiculed or even harassed by their superiors at some point during their medical education? Researchers found that up to 20 percent of students reported some form of mistreatment each year. Additionally, only an average of 31 percent of those who indicated they were mistreated actually reported the incident to faculty or university administrators.
