The authors present results from a survey of senior medical students in the class of 1981 concerning their selection of residency training programs in psychiatry. Generally, students were more influenced by clinical training opportunities and quality of life factors and not much influenced by the philosophy of the program. The implications of the findings are discussed from the perspectives of both advising and recruiting medical students.
