I am absolutely sure that academic dishonesty does occur in my own faculty and in my own university but I am to be convinced that it is widespread or highly prevalent. I have personally found the vast majority of medical students that I have interacted with to be kind, personable, empathetic and committed to one day doing the best for their patients.
When I think of senior doctors who behaviour rattles me, I think back to their behaviour either as medical students or junior doctors and in highsight I realise that nothing has really changed. This is not to say that people are not capable of change but it worries me.
