Título Mental disorders of physicians
Información bibliográfica 1993, Vol.51, Nos.9-10, p.373-386. 47 ref.
Resumen The literature on mental disorders of physicians is reviewed. There are indications of higher suicide rates, more addiction and higher prevalence of non-psychotic mental disease among physicians than in the general population. These differences have been attributed to work-related factors, frustrations during medical education and greater vulnerability of individuals choosing the medical profession. Proposed remedies include health education and the development of coping strategies during medical education and adequate occupational health surveillance of doctors.
