Abstract : This study looked at the relationship of prior-to-service biographical data, medical histories from Military Entry Processing Stations (MEPS), neuropsychological functioning, and medical utilization at basic training (BT). One goal was to see if women who successfully graduate from BT differed from nongraduates in terms of prior-to-service or in-service medical and psychological characteristics. A second goal was to measure women's responses to the stresses associated with military training by analyzing patterns of medical resource utilization and reporting of psychological symptoms. Subjects consisted of 1417 females and 820 males.
