In our study, we evaluated perceived stress among medical students including its sources and severity along with its correlation with academic performance, which may be of importance to both medical teachers and psychologists. To our knowledge such a detailed study has not been reported from Pakistani medical schools. In our study, medical students reported a higher level of perceived stress, which was significantly higher among female students, but it's correlation with self-reported academic performance was not significant. Academic and psychosocial stressors were reportedly more common both in terms of frequency of occurrence and severity. By logistic regression analyses stressed cases were associated with female gender, psychosocial and academic related stressors. 2b1af7f3a8
