A Comparison of Medical Students from Medical and Nonmedical Families
Gough, Harrison G.; Hall, Wallace B.
Journal of Medical Education, 52, 7, 541-7, Jul 77
In a study of 1,195 medical students, those from medical families were insignificantly different from their classmates on premedical scholastic achievement and admission test scores, but were slightly younger and attended more prestigious undergraduate colleges. Academic and clinical performance was equivalent but specialty-choice differences were found between the two groups. (Editor/LBH)
