  1. Reliance on high technology among senior medical students.

    Article - En anglais

    To gain a better understanding of senior medical students who perceive high-technology medicine as the desirable form of medical practice, we developed and evaluated a structural equation model.

    Intolerance to clinical uncertainty, Machiavellianism, and authoritarianism characterized students who scored higher on reliance on high-technology medicine.

    High scorers also tended to have a negative orientation toward patients'psychological problems and were unlikely to choose careers in primary care medicine.

    Students who perceive high technology as a panacea in clinical medicine share personal traits and attitudes toward patients that are not conducive to achieving the national goal of a 50 : 50 ratio between primary and non-primary care physicians.
