The journey of medical training is long and comes with an immense amount of financial and emotional stress to both the medical student and their family members. In order to avert all such untoward consequences and to minimize the financial load, it is essential that a right candidate with apt intellectual capabilities and personality should preferably opt for the field of medicine. In continuation, a competent medical undergraduate student not only requires a sound cognition base and good skills, but also requires a range of personal qualities. Despite the role of the personal attributes in predicting the performance of a medical student, the assessment of personality has not been given much importance. However, the available research findings on personality suggest that a systematic measurement of personality can provide significant information about the decision to select students for the medical profession or for their right specialty as a part of the postgraduation course. In conclusion, the personality of a medical student plays an important role in the academic performance and the clinical outcomes. Thus, it becomes the need of the hour to provide adequate emphasis toward the timely assessment of personality among medical students to improve academic outcome, career preference, and even upgradation of the quality of care offered to patients.
