The Effect of Medical Socialization on Medical Students' Need for Power.
Kressin, Nancy R.
Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, v22 n1 p91-98 Jan 1996
Examines whether the individual personality characteristic of power motivation increases during medical school. Recorded interviews with a diverse group of medical students at two points in time were coded for power motivation. Results showed that white students' power motivation decreased, whereas minority students' levels remained the same, suggesting some race-linked differences in the medical socialization experience.
