    To determine whether evaluation comments differed based on preceptors' and students' genders, preceptors' evaluations of medical students were analyzed. Preceptors tended to comment on the same themes in the same proportions, regardless of gender. However, women preceptors commented about 'Personality/Maturity' and 'Personality/Character' more frequently for men students than they did for women students. Conversely, women preceptors commented about 'Clinical Skills-Negative' more frequently for women students than for men.
