Prescribing behavior of physicians attending a continuous medical education session at the Aga Khan University Hospital were studied by administering a questionnaire with written clinical scenarios. Sixty physicians returned the questionnaire. Five to fourteen physicians did not write the prescriptions for one or more diseases. Eleven to forty-nine physicians wrote prescriptions of generic nature without mentioning the specific drugs dose or duration, it is concluded that prescription writing for a given clinical scenario may not be a good method to study the prescribing behavior of physicians.
