Description

A prospective, longitudinal design empirically tested the hypotheses that career development indices account for significant amounts of variance in the prediction of medical school success and account for unique variance beyond that of academic predictors of medical school success. Participants included 111 first-year medical students whose progress was followed during the first 2 years of medical school. The results supported the hypotheses. Logistic regression analyses indicated that career development indices accounted for statistically significant amounts of unique variance beyond that of the academic predictors. Implications for the use of career development indices in practice are discussed. (C) 1996 Academic Press, Inc.
