Mistreated Med Students Need More Than Lip Service

Beyond lip service, what’s being done to prevent the mistreatment of medical students? Not much, according to a lit review.
Researchers led by Laura M. Mazer of Stanford University School of Medicine combed 3,300 articles, and found only 10 peer-reviewed studies detailing outcomes from programs—defined as educational efforts to reduce the abuse, mistreatment, harassment, or discrimination of trainees. The researchers also weren’t very impressed by the quality of the studies; just a handful reported any outcome data. 
Beyond flagging the research gap, the study offers advice for reporting on mistreatment programs and calls for proactive programs to change the academic medical culture.
