Female medical students less confident
Despite performing equally to their male peers, female medical students consistently report decreased self-confidence, according to a study published in Patient Education and Counseling. The study also found that female medical students also appeared less confident to patients. A literature survey which accompanied the observational report and analysis showed that while there is no consistent gender difference in academic performance, female medical students tend to underestimate their abilities while males tend to overestimate theirs.
