Abstract: This paper is to determine the stress level and stressors among medical students. The methods; A cross-sectional study using self-administered questionnaire which consisted of three parts namely socio demographic information, potential stressors and Personal Stress Inventory which gave the stress score. The results; A total of 155 students (83.3%) involved in this study. The prevalence of stress among the respondents was 70.3% (109/155). Prevalence of stress was found to be higher among first year (90.2%) followed by second year (71.4%), third year (67.6%) and fourth year students (42.9%). However One-way ANOVA showed that there was no significant difference of mean stress level between the different years of study, F (2,109) =2.404, p=0.095. Further analysis (between Stress and No stress group) showed that environment factors ( ~ 22:4 .388, p < 0.05), and academic ( ~ 24:. 700, p < 0.05) experienced by the respondents were significantly associated with stress development.
