Career Maturity of Students in Accelerated versus Traditional Programs
Borges, Nicole J.; Richard, George V.; Duffy, Ryan D.
Career Development Quarterly, v56 n2 p171-176 Dec 2007
The authors assessed the career maturity of students in accelerated versus traditional academic programs. Students in traditional programs were hypothesized to be more advanced regarding their career decision making and development when compared with students in accelerated programs. The Medical Career Development Inventory (see M. L. Savickas, 1984) was administered to 441 medical students. Results showed that students in traditional programs had significantly greater career crystallization and career specification. Interventions are needed to further the career maturity and developmental tasks of students in accelerated programs. (Contains 1 table.)
