Study: Doctors From Elite Schools Prescribe Fewer Opioids

Posted by @DanHinmon, Tue, Aug 8 8:24am

From this story: “Doctors from the lowest-ranked U.S. medical schools are three times as likely to prescribe opioids as those trained at Harvard, the top-ranked U.S. school, according to a new research paper.”

The study’s author found “a ‘striking relationship’ between the frequency of prescriptions and medical school attended.”
