Abstract

Medico-legal knowledge is an essence for a medical professional, irrespective of their specialty. One year prospective study from 1st September, 2014 to 30th September, 2015 was carried out in Emergency Medicine department of SKIMS to study the knowledge of resident doctors regarding various aspects of medicolegal issues. The study revealed that the knowledge score of medico-legal issues was higher in male resident doctors as compared to their female counter parts. Duration of medical training plus years of experience lead to higher mean knowledge scores. Senior resident doctors and also the resident doctors having experience greater than five years had significantly higher knowledge scores.
