The cognitive-transactional model of stress was used to study the process by which medical students cope with stress.
The study examined the coping responses employed by male and female first- and fourth-year medical students as a function of those situations they appraised as most stressful.
Multivariate analyses of variance (MANOVAs) revealed that preferred coping strategies varied by stressor type and year of training.
In dealing with medical-school-related stressors, first-year students used self-blame and problem-solving styles of coping more than did fourthyear students.
When dealing with interpersonal stressors, however, fourth-year students tended to use confrontive coping more than did first-year students.
Surprisingly, whether the student was a man or a woman had no impact on coping responses.
