Sexual bullying of female medical trainees needs to stop

MORE needs to be done in the medical profession to stamp out sexual harassment, bullying and discrimination, which female medical trainees face, a professor says.

In research published in the Medical Journal of Australia Monday, University of Sydney Medical Education professor Merrilyn Walton said medical trainees were encouraged not to complain and to conform in the current medical training culture.

But she said changing policies and guidelines would not be enough to combat the problem. Changing the design of medical education itself was the only solution, Prof Walton said.

"Colleges need to have zero tolerance for harassment and discrimination," she said.
