Miller, Joseph M.; Smith, Imogene K.
Journal of Medical Education, v57 n8 p644-46 Aug 1982
A study showed that although female medical students had slightly lower National Board examination scores on part one and lower grade point averages, they performed significantly better in the obstetrics and gynecology clerkship. Possible factors include women students' interest in women's health care and female representation on the house staff. (MSE)
