The existance of an ascending line of development of the abilities to interview and of the quality of the medical history taken by students on advancing in the medical career is expected. In order to compare the quality of the medical history recently taken by third- and six-year medical students, 19 patients were sequentially interviewed by the same number of students of each year. The newly taken medical histories were compared taking into consideration qualitative and quantitative criteria. Generally, the medical history taken by the interns were of better quality, mainly because they got more primary information and established the chronopathogram of the clinical data in a better way, excepting 4 cases in which those of the third year were slightly higher. In the rest of the 15 reviewed medical histories, the quality of the interns was significantly higher in 7 and, fundamentally, in one. In the other 7 there was a mild superiority. Emphasis is made on the need to continue teaching and evaluating the abilities to interview at every level of the clinical area and on seeking the most efficient methods to attain it.
