About one-quarter of resident reported bullying was often or occasionally a problem in their program, according to latest Resident Lifestyle and Happiness Report by Medscape. The report, based on survey results from nearly 1,900 residents across 25 specialties, found that 41% of respondents said bullying was rarely a problem, while 26% said it was never a problem.

Although more than three-quarters of respondents said that were rarely or never picked on, many victims of bullying or those who observed it submitted comments about their experiences. One resident wrote, “Fellow residents will pick on a resident who is not liked. There is also inappropriate bullying from chief residents.”
