British Journal of Psychiatry. CXXXI, 1977: Psychiatric Illness in Male Doctors and Controls: An Analysis of Scottish Hospitals' In-Patient Data. Robin M. Murray. Pp. 1-10.

This is an interesting study which compares psychiatric illness in male doctors to that in males who are not doctors but who are in a similar socioeconomic class. More than twice as many male doctors as others in the same class were admitted for psychiatric hospitalization. Doctors have greater access to psychiatrists, and this was felt to account, in part, for their higher admission rate. It was found that first-time admission for drug dependence was five times higher for male doctors than for the control group. Alcoholism was the greatest problem among doctors and accounted for a very high percentage of admissions.
