Global rate of attrition (GRA) in medicine by group pertaining to the same period of study, 1977–2001. To calculate the attrition in the medical profession, a series was constructed for each graduating group, from the first admission in 1977 up to the 1997–2001 graduating class. Once the series was completed, it could be established that the lowest level of drop-outs took place during the period 1985–1989, with a rate of 165.0 per thousand students, while the highest level was registered in the 1990–1994 class, with a rate of 493.5.
