Table 3 Global rates of attrition and final efficiency of the medical graduates per thousand students by sex and groups pertaining to the 1996–2000 and 1997–2001 periods. The information about drop-outs, graduates and final efficiency does not show any significant difference when the sex variable is included. However, given that it was possible to obtain information by sex for only two classes for the same period of study, it would be difficult to draw any final conclusions regarding this issue.
