  • Jane Barclay Mandel
Part of the Perspectives in Sexuality book series (Persp. Sex.)

Abstract

Sex education in medical schools is now a reality, with 110 out of the 114 American medical schools reporting courses (Lief and Ebert, 1974). The days of urging the adoption of human sexuality courses by medical schools are behind us, but an equally difficult task is before us: the evaluation of a myriad of courses using different formats, teaching techniques, content, class size, and goals, both attitudinal and cognitive.
