Here are reports that contain fun facts about medical students.

Eysenbach on Eyes in Backs of Student Heads

"Medical Students See That Academic Misconduct is Common," G. Eysenbach, British Medical Journal, vol. 3222, no. 7297, May 26, 2001, p. 1307. (Thanks to Irene and Irv Arbuthnot for bringing this to our attention.)

The Personal Side of Medicine

"Attributes of Excellent Attending-Physician Role Models," Scott M. Wright, et al., New England Journal of Medicine, vol. 339, no. 27, December 31, 1998; pp. 1986-93. (Thanks to Noah Raizman for bringing this to our attention.) The authors explain that:

Attending physicians who were identified as excellent role models were more likely than controls to organize a dinner at the end of their month as attending physician, share professional experiences, talk about their personal lives, and try to learn about the lives of the house staff than were controls. In contrast, bringing doughnuts to rounds was not associated with identification as an excellent role model.

Medical Java

"Caffeine Consumption And Anxiety and Depressive Symptomatology Among Medical Students," Y. Mino, N. Yasuda, T. Fujimura and H. Ohara, Arukoru Kenkyuto Yakubutsu Ison, vol. 25, no. 6, December 1990, pp. 486-96. The authors are at Kochi Medical School.
