Last week we took a poll to find out at what is the likely reason for stress among doctors.
And as a response 502 doctors & medical students took the poll, out of which 66% of were doctors & 34% of were medical students.
The majority of them (54%) are experiencing stress and anxiety due to excessive workload and long duty hours.
We have analyzed the results and are presented in the primer attached below.
Here’s a snippet of their opinions, in their own words…
