(a) Scores on the Attitudes Toward Osteopathic Medicine Scale (ATOMS) as the dependent variable, and personality measures as regressors.

(b) Bivariate correlation between the ATOMS scores and other personality measures shown in the table.

(c)Standardized regression coefficients (β) are calculated from score distributions converted to a standard distribution for all regressors with a mean of zero and standard deviation of 1 for comparability purposes.

(d)Unstandardized regression coefficients are calculated from raw score distributions.
