Abstract

Past research suggests that as a single variable, student age exerts a significant negative influence on medical school achievement, particularly in regard to preclinical sub jects. This studi' employs multiple regression procedures to assess the unique ejlfect of student age on preclinical achievement in the context of eight other predictor variables. Results indicate that student age fails to contribute to the explanation of preclinical achievement after the influence of the other variables is taken into account.
