Recruitment Behavior and Program Directors: How Ethical Are Their Perspectives about the Match Process?
Carek, Peter J.; Anderson, Kimberly D.; Blue, Amy V.; Mavis, Brian E.
Family Medicine, v32 n4 p258-60 Apr 2000
Examined family practice residency directors' perspectives on the National Resident Matching Program and medical students' recruitment behavior. Analysis of questionnaire responses (n=351) found that while few directors felt it was ethically wrong for students to interview in more than one specialty, most indicated that knowledge of this behavior had a significant negative effect on the applicant's rank order.
