Med school students still get gifts from drug companies

The Philadelphia Inquirer, March 7, 2013
The poll of more than 2,000 medical students and residents from every medical school in the United States found that one-third of first-year students and more than half of fourth-year students and residents said they received drug-industry-sponsored gifts. Most of the students said this interaction with drug companies provided them with valuable education, but the majority also agreed that these interactions opened them up to bias, according to the findings published online in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
