This questionnaire is part of a journalistic investigation on sexism, harassment, and sexualized violence in the medical profession.

You can answer directly in your language available on links:





Power imbalance and dependencies between doctors and patients, as well as a highly hierarchical system, make it difficult to talk about cases of abuse and sanction the offenders. Our investigation focuses on sexualized violence against patients, and other similar grievances in this context. We want to understand how widespread the phenomenon is, who is affected by it and what are the mechanisms that make it difficult to punish the perpetrators.

We guarantee anonymity to all the sources – the information you send us will be treated with the utmost confidentiality.

Should you agree to be contacted by the reporters working on this investigation with any follow-up questions, please leave your contact details at the end of the survey. We’re eager to hear your story, and we believe it would greatly advance our investigation. Otherwise, all the data transmitted will remain anonymous. If you want to change or add something, you can always go back within the survey.
