Studies of Medical Student Financing. Medical Student Finances and Institutional Characteristics 1974-1975.
Mantovani, Richard E.
This analysis investigates the relationship between (1) income and expenses of medical students and (2) selected characteristics of the medical schools they attended by assessing the degree to which variations in student financing patterns are explained by differences among medical schools. The data used were derived from anonymous questionnaires completed by a representative national sample of 7,261 medical students, comprising 15 percent of the total enrollment at each of 110 medical schools. Two basic patterns emerge regarding medical student financing, each associated with a certain type of medical school. Students enrolled in private high-tuition, research-oriented schools tended to depend more on scholarships and nonrepayable funds, loans, and contributions from parents. Those attending schools which were public, low-tuition and less research-oriented depended more on funds contributed by their spouses. Data tables and analyses are presented, and the questionnaire used is included. (Author/MSE)
