Sessional GPs have job satisfaction
Dr Gillian Braunold was quoted as saying there should be positive discrimination in favour of male applicants to medical schools (News Analysis, June 11).
This was not deemed to be necessary 30 years ago, in the reverse direction, when girls made up 10 per cent of the medical student intake, and it should not be necessary now.
Boys may be spotty and not perform as well in interview as girls of the same age. That is no reason to give them special preference.
If we start to travel down that path, we shall have girls asking for special treatment if, for example, they suffer from premenstrual tension during exams.
