Abstract (Summary)

Medical students enrolled in medical schools around the nation today are a vital part of continuing to provide quality health care services to patients. The success of these students in their educational endeavors is important to the health and well-being of future patients that they will serve. These students first become exposed to immense stress while in medical school, which will follow them into their residencies and into their medical practices.

This will impact patient care and the quality of care for years to come. This study examines stressors experienced by medical students who are in their second year of medical education. This study also explores which coping strategies for managing stress were utilized by medical students. Finally, this study investigates which coping strategies succeeded for students and if those strategies were provided by their educational institution or were provided outside of the medical education environment.
