Abstract

Background: The pre-internship is the most important examination of the Medical students,
which can assess their professional abilities. The present research has described some important
factors, about these exams.
Material &methods: This study was done in 2002 on 99 medical students who participated in the
examinations in September and Mars 2001. For the analysis, the scores of 13 courses of the
stagery periods, the final scores (pre-internship and basic sciences) and some demographic factors
were collected. To analyze t-test, ANOVA, Pearson’s correlation coefficient and linear regression
were used.
Result: The participants and failed students were 35 and 9 in September and 64 and 10 in Mars
examinations respectively. The mean scores of examinations were significantly different (p=0.034).
The means of the pre-internship examinations for sex and quota system (Sahmieh) were
significantly different in September and total, the means for marital status have significant
differences only in Mars, and the means for the age in both examination and total were significantly
different. Furthermore, the mean scores of Eye and Infectious disease, the means of different
periods, and the final scores were significantly different between pass and fail students in both
examinations. In September, the highest correlation between pre-internship scores and the courses
or the means are for eye and infectious disease, and the mean of stagery period. In Mars
examination, the highest correlation between pre-internship scores and the courses or the means,
belongs to the means of stager and physiopathology periods and the final basic sciences score
respectively. Also the regression equation for the pre-internship score was calculated.
Conclusion: The variables of age, marital statues, quota system and sex, the mean of three
periods and the score of eye and infectious disease are the important variables which more
associated to the scores of the pre-internship examinations.
