This study examining the knowledge and attitudes towards Hoarding Disorder (HD) among a sample of medical providers and medical students (N=67). Correlations among demographic variables and perceived knowledge and severity of HD were also examined. Knowledge of HD was not found to significantly correlate with attitudes toward HD among the participants and knowledge of hoarding behavior symptoms was not found to significantly correlate with a greater perceived severity of the physical and psychological symptoms of HD. The implications of these findings for HD health literacy for medical providers and medical students as well as future research are discussed.
