Last week we took a poll to find out at what level doctors are finding themselves in stress & anxiety.
We asked you to choose the statements that accurately describe how you feel.
And as a response 524 doctors & medical students took the poll, out of which 64% of were doctors & 36% of were medical students.
The majority of participants (33%) had 'Mild degree of stress but it is manageable'
We have analyzed the results and are presented in the primer attached below.
Here’s a snippet of their opinions, in their own words…
"Thought I am absolutely great without any problem but I always try myself to feel a bit of stress to feel the pain of others." ~ Paediatrician facing an optimal amount of stress that helps perform better
"It will always be there because of huge expectations from us especially for those who r dealing with critical cases." ~ Respiratory physician facing a mild degree of stress but it is manageable
"There is tension during work...We have no holidays and are on-call 365 days 24/7, that affects family and social life" ~ Anaesthesiologist facing a moderate degree of stress that affects happiness
