Attitudes towards homeless people among emergency department teachers and learners: a cross-sectional study of medical students and emergency physicians

The objective of this study was to determine if medical students in the preclinical and clinical years and emergency medicine faculty and residents have different attitudes and beliefs about homeless people.
