Error in JAMA Forum Article on Pelvic Examination Under Anesthesia

JAMA. 2019;321(15):1535. doi:10.1001/jama.2019.3638

In the JAMA Forum article titled “Teaching Pelvic Examination Under Anesthesia Without Patient Consent,” published in the February 26, 2019, issue of JAMA,1 there was an error in the sentence “The Association of American Medical Colleges, reversing its prior policy position, offered that ‘performing pelvic examinations on women under anesthesia, without their knowledge or approval…is unethical and unacceptable.’” The Association of American Medical Colleges did not reverse its prior policy position; the organization has been on record in opposing the practice since 2003. This article has been corrected online.
