The cost (to you) of doing medical business

So, according to this study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, medical students receive at least one gift or attend at least one activity sponsored by a pharmaceutical company every week! Many medical residents consider these gifts inappropriate but accept them anyhow. And in case you didn't figure it out, the study points out that this frequent interaction between medical students and pharmaceutical representatives increases the likelihood that physicians will prescribe the sponsor's products.
