Motivations for Studying Dentistry Among First-Year Dental Students
Cohen, R.; Coburn, D.
Medical Education, 11, 2, 139-43, Mar 77

An extrinsic motivation, financial reward, was found to be the most widespread, but other widely-chosen motivations were intrinsic, including working with people, stimulating work, and being autonomous.
