Coffin, Susan E.; Babbott, David
Academic Medicine, v64 n10 p600-05 Oct 1989
A study of medical students' pre-medical-school and graduation specialty preferences examined sex differences in selection of pediatrics at both points and changes from preference for pediatrics. Half those abandoning early preference for pediatrics stayed within primary care. More shifted from family practice to pediatrics than kept their preference for pediatrics. (Author/MSE)
