The evidence dealing with suicide among physicians was reviewed. Special attention was paid to the statistical treatment of the data, the presence or absence of adequate standardization, and the significance of the sample size. No conclusive evidence was found that suicide rates among physicians, or among any medical specialty, were higher than those in the general population.
