Why women find doctors so irresistibleNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:56 am ICT by admin
The study was carried out after researching medical romance stories to see what got readers so hot under the collar.
In the study, at random 20 novels were selected with a medical theme and the recurrence of “brilliant, tall, muscular, male doctors with chiselled features, working in emergency medicine” was noticed.
“These novels suggest there is an urgent need to include instruction in the arts of romance in training programmes for doctors and nurses who intend working in these settings,” the Sun quoted him, as saying in a tongue in cheek manner.
“It gives a good insight into how people think medicine should be. If you were to take these novels literally, one would think uncontrolled passion is an inevitable consequence of working in the emergency room,” he said.
“Perhaps it would be useful for doctors to look at some of these novels - although young doctors might believe this is how medicine is and sadly it’s not,” he added.
The study is published in journal The Lancet. (ANI)
