Özet

Objective: Osteoporosis is a major public health problem in many countries. Educating healthcare providers about osteoporosis may play a pivotal role in improving osteoporosis management. However, there are very few studies at the physicians' level of knowledge on this matter. Our aim was to determine as future physicians, Turkish medical students' knowledge and attitudes to the management and prevention of osteoporosis.
