  1. Effects of mindfulness-based stress reduction on medical and premedical students.

    Article - En anglais

    The inability to cope successfully with the enormous stress of medical education may lead to a cascade of consequences at both a personal and professional level.

    The present study examined the short-term effects of an 8-week meditation-based stress reduction intervention on premedical and medical students using a well-controlled statistical design.

    Findings indicate that participation in the intervention can effectively (1) reduce self-reported state and trait anxiety, (2) reduce reports of overall psychological distress including depression, (3) increase scores on overall empathy levels, and (4) increase scores on a measure of spiritual experiences assessed at termination of intervention.

    These results (5) replicated in the wait-list control group, (6) held across different experiments, and (7) were observed during the exam period.

    Future research should address potential long-term effects of mindfulness training for medical and premedical students.
