Do Conscientiousness Levels Predict Later Clinical Performance of Medical Students?

YouTube video

20 years ago, a study reported that medical “students who failed to bring passport photographs as requested on induction were significantly more likely to fail second-year exams” (48% vs. 8%). Would it be only a coincidence happened 20 years ago or does the current data support it?

The article that I mentioned in the video: Sawdon, M., & Mclachlan, J. C. (2020). ‘10% of your medical students will cause 90% of your problems’: a prospective correlational study. BMJ open, 10(11), e038472.
