This study was done to investigate how female students are performing in a programme which has traditionally been dominated by males and with stereotyped beliefs that male students perform better than their female counterparts. The study brought to the fore that female medical students are outperforming male students. The research also describes the student's profile and learner characteristics and study preferences. The authors are of the opinion that studies such as this will contribute towards eliminating the biases, stereotyping and prejudices against women in the traditionally male-dominated medical profession.
