What do students find attractive about the practice of medicine ? A pattern of stability over time.
There is little consensus about the stability or instability of medical students career preferences during their time in college.
These two studies found little change in their perception of the attractiveness of aspects of medical work which may be related to their final career choice.
In the first study three successive cohorts of students in a London medical school completed questionnaires about the attractiveness of various medical job-attributes.
Each cohort was tested twice such that the pattern of testing covered the entire course.
Only data from students who were present at both test sessions were used for the longitudinal study.
