Medical Education and Nuclear War
Cassel, Christine K.
Lancet. 1988 Oct 8; 2(8615): 834-837.
Many physicians accept that it is a medical task to estimate the effects of nuclear weapons and to educate others about these consequences. We contend that information about the impact of nuclear war should be part of every medical school's curriculum. To omit this information is to neglect the most significant threat to public health facing the world today. We here present a status report on the development of educational programmes about nuclear weapons and nuclear war and a justification for their inclusion in schools of medicine.
