In previous studies, physicians practicing in the areas of obstetrics and gynecology, general practice, psychiatry, and family medicine were more likely to receive disciplinary action, and those practicing in pediatrics and radiology were less likely to be disciplined. The practices of internal medicine, surgery, and anesthesiology were not predictive of disciplinary action. In our study, similar patterns of discipline according to specialty were seen in five of the seven largest specialties (internal medicine, family practice, pediatrics, surgery, and obstetrics and gynecology); these patterns support the generalizability of our findings. In contrast to earlier studies, we did not find male sex to be a risk factor. Our study design precluded a full assessment of age as a risk factor for disciplinary action.
