In Reply We appreciate the response from Dr Laitman and his colleagues to our Viewpoint.1 Their survey data2 demonstrating medical students’ limited knowledge of human papillomavirus (HPV) in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma is concerning given that these future doctors will be integral in educating patients in years to come. Their argument to advocate for the inclusion of education of HPV’s role in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma is compelling. If our nation’s future physicians are unaware of the association, how can we expect the general public to be?
