    Abstract

    Twenty-six medical schools in the United Kingdom have recently taken part in a survey on the teaching of genitourinary medicine (venereology) to undergraduates. Four of the schools were unable to run their own formal lecture courses and a further three could not offer clinical attachments. The mean number of lectures given per centre was six, clinic attendances 10 hours, and total teaching time (lectures and clinical attachment combined) 15 hours. This represents a reduction in teaching hours over the last 15 years and contrasts with the ever-increasing clinical problems associated with the sexually transmitted diseases.
