More than half of the senior students surveyed at 10 U.S. medical schools reported experiences with sexual harassment, according to a study published by the California Medical Assn. The study, part of a larger survey of students' views of how they are treated during medical training, concluded that mistreatment may affect the way future doctors treat their patients. About 97% of the students said they were mistreated or harassed at some point in medical school, with nearly one in five saying they were hit or pushed. Fifty-five percent of the 581 students reported some form of sexual harassment, including one-fourth of the male students. Nearly 30% of the women and 5.6% of the men said they had encountered some kind of sexual advance. The study, conducted by three Chicago researchers, was published in the August edition of the Western Journal of Medicine.
