A four-year reevaluation of the vocational interests of dental students on the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory.J Dent Educ. 1982 Aug; 46(8):495-9.JD
A sample of dental students was inventoried on their vocational interests as freshmen. They were reinventoried as seniors with the same instrument. While most interests were found to be reliable over time for the group, male dental students lost some of their orientation toward physicians and females were found to have lost some social orientation. Male students' orientation was found to be investigative while that of females was found to be primarily artistic-investigative.
