Author: DR.JEEVANKUMAR U.YADAV, DR.DEEPMALA J.YADAV
Abstract: Background: Medical education is highly stressful and demanding as a career. This exerts a negative impact on the medical students in the form of stress. Aim: To assess the level of stress in the medical students, and to find the association of stress with gender and age. Methods: Cross sectional study conducted among consenting undergraduate medical students (n=250) of Medical College, were included in the study. Stress was evaluated through questionnaire during May 2015–July 2015. Data was analysed using R software v 3.6.0. Chi square test was used to find association between the variables (P < 0.05). Results: Maximum participants were observed in mild stress category. Age and gender had no association with stress, (P=0.6751, P>0.05), respectively. Teaching related stress (TLRS) was most common stressor in females of first (n=42), second (n=30) and third year (n=29) along with Group activities related stress (GARS) in third year (n=29). Among males of first (n=39), second (n=41), and third year (n=32), stressors observed were Drives and desire related stress (DRS), Interpersonal and intrapersonal related stress (IRS), and TLRS. Academic related stress (ARS) was common stressor in moderate and high category. Association was seen with level of stress and year of education, (P=2.2e-16). Conclusion: Medical students regardless of their age or gender have some level of stress. Irrespective of age or gender all medical students are exposed to stress, associated with their year of study.
