Gender and mean age (SD) before the intervention for medical students participating in the self-development group, discussion group, and the control group. The number of subjects vary for age (n = 215) and gender (n = 219) due to missing data. No differences were found between the groups according to the chi-squared test with a significance level set at 5%.
