Moreover, they reported the results of a survey on medical students’ knowledge and drinking habits. It highlighted the lack in the field of knowledge of alcohology, a high frequency of “occasional drinkers” (34.7%) and “regular drinkers” (25.9%) among the students of the fifth year of the Medicine and Surgery degree course of the Catania University.
