Effects of Social Support on Medical Students' Performances.
Rospenda, Kathleen M.; Richman, Judith A.
Academic Medicine, v69 n6 p496-500 Jun 1994
A study of 120 third-year medical students investigated the relationship of role stress (involving competing demands of school and social and/or family life), social support, and sources of support outside or inside medical school. Results suggest that, contrary to expectation, social support corresponds to lower achievement, particularly for women. (Author/MSE)
