Abstract

First-year medical students (n = 138) at the U.S. Military's Medical School report frequent binge drinking. Nearly one fifth of female and one third of male students report at least one episode of binge drinking in the two weeks preceding a survey of alcohol use. Only one fifth of the medical students reported an interest in an expanded addiction medicine curriculum. The authors' promoted the use of a survey to bridge the gap between self assessment and learning.
