The prevalence of eating disorders in female health care students



The prevalence of eating disorders in female health care students



Occupational Medicine 52(3): 113-119



Previous research has suggested a raised prevalence of eating disorders amongst female medical students. This study aimed to test the belief, commonly held by occupational physicians, that there is also an increased prevalence of eating disorders amongst female applicants to nurse training. If correct, it implies the need for additional support and may predict increased failure to complete the course.
