Doctors With Poor Communication Skills More Like To Get Complaints

This may fall into the category of stating the obvious, but a study published on Tuesday September 4th founds that doctors who graduate medical school with poor communication skills are more likely to get complaints from patients down the road in their careers.

The researchers tested and scored medical school graduates, who knew that they were being watched and graded (and who still often communicated poorly), and then tracked them and the complaints made against them. Lower scores correlated strongly with a greater number of complaints.
