Ammons, Stanley W.; Kelly, Douglas E.
Academic Medicine, v72 n9 p819-30 Sep 1997
Medical school surveys in 1994-95 and 1995-96 (n=104 schools) found that PhDs accounted for 25-30% of medical school enrollments; in some institutions, it was about half. Trend is toward interdisciplinary rather than departmental degrees. Number of student supported by National Institutes of Health (NIH) research grants was nearly twice that for NIH traineeships. About one-fourth were international students on temporary visas. (MSE)
