Abstract

Comparative medical school performance information, including the presence of a summative "dean's code" statement, was identified by selective content analysis of 310 dean's letters. There was a significant increase in the report of comparative information over the ten year study period, and correlation with residency in-training evaluations showed that this information may be useful to housestaff selection committees.
