Education about death and dying during the clinical years of medical school.
Although there has been a dramatic increase in education about death and dying in medical school curricula, the physician's interaction with terminally ill patients and their families still causes concern.
The purpose of our study was to determine the impact of the third-year clerkship on education of medical students about death and dying.
From August 1, 1988, to August 1, 1990, a questionnaire concerning the care of terminally ill patients was distributed to all students completing the third-year clinical clerkship at our medical school.
One hundred and eighty questionnaires were distributed, of which 706 were returned, yielding a response rate of 59%.
