Survey of medical schools is critical of perks

New York Times, June 3, 2008
Most medical schools in the United States fail to police adequately the money, gifts and free drug samples that pharmaceutical companies provide doctors and trainees, according to a ranking by the American Medical Student Association. Only 7 of the 150 medical schools included in the rankings received a grade of A, while 14 were given a B. Sixty got a failing grade, and the Association found that 28 schools, or nearly one in five, were revising their conflict-of-interest policies.
