The prevalence of smoking among physicians has gradually declined over the past 25 years.
Few recent studies have examined specific smoking habits.
Of 393 physicians in the Minnesota Medical Association who responded to a survey (response rate of 83%), 9% reported smoking any form of tobacco.
The prevalence of cigarette smoking was 4.9%, while 5.1% smoked a pipe and 2.1% smokers cigars.
The prevalence estimated of current and former smokers were greater among men than women and among older than younger physicians.
