We would like to inform readers of some unanticipated reactions to our article, "Prevalence of Alcohol Problems Among Pediatric Residents," published in the ARCHIVES in November 1999.1 This article reported pediatric interns' anonymous responses to the Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test (MAST),2 completed as an educational exercise during a required substance abuse education and prevention course. Several participants strongly protested our publication of these results. They felt that their rights had been violated, as they had not been asked to give informed consent to participate as research subjects, and that our report gave readers the impression that alcohol-related problems occur during residency at higher rates than are actually the case. They believe that their training program had been unfairly and negatively portrayed as a result. These are serious concerns and require thoughtful review.
