Description: In the USA the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report on social and behavioural sciences (SBS) indicated that 50% of morbidity and mortality in the United States is associated with SBS factors, and that SBS were inadequately taught in medical schools. An article by Carney and co-workers in Academic Medicine (2010, 85: 169-176) explores the use of the AAMC’s graduation questionnaire as a tool to study behavioural and social sciences domains in undergraduate medical education and to assess curricular innovations in relation to these domains.
