First-Year Residents' Performances Compared with Their Medical School Class Ranks as Determined by Three Ranking Systems.
Loftus, Loretta S.; And Others
Academic Medicine, v67 n5 p319-23 May 1992
Three systems of class ranking (grades, test scores, and clinical performance evaluations) are compared, using 124 residents graduated from medical school. All three systems showed modest correlations with performance in residency, but clinical performance measures were most predictive. Reliable and valid deans' letters of recommendation could be written based on all three ranking systems. (Author/MSE)
