“…Various studies done across the world had consistently shown that there is high prevalence of stress in medical students. [14][15][16][17] The mean and SD of PSS score in our study was 17.7 and 5.5 respectively which was comparable to a study done in Tamil Nadu by Sakthivel et al with mean score as 17 and SD as 6.5. 10 However it was less than that found in a study done in Kolkatta by Chowdhury et al where the mean and SD were 29.58 and 6.6 respectively.…”

As we have already seen in our study the final year students are experiencing more stress.…”

“…Esse autor encontrou menor incidência de estresse nos alunos do primeiro ano em relação aos demais, também concordando com nossos achados, nos quais os alunos do primeiro semestre apresentavam menos estresse que os demais 12,13 . Diferentemente, Bassols et al 7 encontraram maior nível de estresse entre alunos do primeiro ano em relação aos do último ano do curso de Medicina na Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul.…”
