Effect of medical school stress on the mental health for medical students in early and late clinical curriculum.
Earlier research has shown that medical students in the United Kingdom and the United States report a higher level of nervous symptoms than the general population.
To better understand how medical students in Norway compare with these findings, 299 male and female students in the clinical curriculum at the University of Oslo were asked to complete a questionnaire about themselves and their mental health.
Medical students in Norway do not differ from the general population in mental health.
However, the students report a lower level of general self-esteem than the general population.
