Abstract

In a prospective survey for changes in emotions and attitudes of all medical interns of The Oregon Health Sciences University (N = 22) at six intervals during the 1982-1983 academic year, both positive and negative emotional changes were noted. Satisfaction with the decision to become a physician decreased during the period, a change that correlated directly with depression and fatigue and inversely with excitement and importance.
