In School Selection

A new study from Elsevier Health concludes that approximately one-quarter of medical school students consider quitting med school and many of them will never treat patients. This statistic is indeed alarming and probably higher than many suspected.

We believe that if additional surveys find similar results, medical school admissions officers are going to increase their due diligence on applicants and their sincere interest in practicing medicine as well as perhaps their mental fortitude to remain relatively unfazed by many of the events that trigger this urge to quit. We expect such a move would mostly alter the medical school admission interview process.
