Sun protection behaviors were compared between 100 patients and 85 physicians in a university-based clinic and hospital. Physicians were more likely to use sunscreen, but patients were more likely to wear long sleeve shirts and stay in the shade to avoid the sun. There was no statistically significant difference in the frequency or number of sun protection behaviors utilized.
