Academic Medicine, v73 n10 p1087-94 Oct 1998
Survey data (1993-94) from 264 fourth-year medical students and 500 clinical faculty members at 59 medical schools found that schools that have primary care missions and have historically produced more generalists transmit higher levels of encouragement to their students about primary care. However, even at schools with strong primary care missions, students hold unenthusiastic attitudes about primary care practice. (Author/MSE)
