Another look at learning style inventory and medical career choice.

Abstract

It has been suggested that learning style, as measured by the Learning Style Inventory, can be associated with choice of a particular medical field and that individuals with certain learning styles in making career choices are influenced more than other students by particular learning experiences. In the replication study reported here the Learning Style Inventory was administered to over 200 practicing physicians and medical students. Contrary to the previous findings, the results of this study suggest that there is no association between learning style and career choice in medicine and no association between learning style and the kind of influences which were most important in making a career choice.
