This study used a cross sectional research design. There were 79 students, 26 of which were males and the remaining 53 were females chosen by stratified random sampling. The data collection tool used was a questionnaire. Chi-square test was used for data analysis. The study concluded that there was an association between academic performance and medical specialty preference. Hence, the students with an above average academic performance were more likely to choose a medical specialty with an uncontrollable lifestyle. However, the relationship between performance and medical specialty was said to be statistically insignificant.
