Abstract:

The objectives of the present study are to evaluate the awareness and attitude of interns and resident doctors, in Mangalore, about medical negligence and medical ethics. Participants where either intern or a resident doctor who was working in Mangalore. Participants were randomly chosen from both genders. Total number of interns were 269 (154 Males and 115 Females) and that of residents were 231 (134 males and 97females). The study population lacks significant amount of knowledge about medical negligence and medical ethics. Majority of the interns have poor knowledge about the subject (61.3%). Only 4.8% of resident doctors have good knowledge and 48.1% of resident doctors have average knowledge. Study indicates that there should be a prompt action to cover the lack of awareness among doctors for their own safety and as well as that of the patients.
