Abstract

1. A student evaluation and assistance program of the sort referred to here functions most satisfactorily if the number of psychologists and psychiatrists are sharply limited, and if they work together as a unit with the Admissions Committee and the Promotion Board.2. Prognostic evaluations based upon such studies appear to be relatively valid.3. More attention should be paid to personality characteristics and to motivation in the selection of students for the study of medicine.4. Research should be undertaken to determine those factors which correlate best with success in the field of medicine. An example of such research is that which has been done by Dr. Lowell Kelly and his associates. This type of investigation should be continued and amplified.
