Factors associated with mental health of medical students in Vietnam: A national study

Tran, Quynh Anh (2015) Factors associated with mental health of medical students in Vietnam: A national study. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This project was the first national study of the health and wellbeing of medical students in Vietnam. Data from over 2,000 students from eight universities indicate that, while the majority are healthy, significant proportions have poor mental and/or physical health and other life adversities. For many students, heavy academic demands were not a major stressor; rather, difficulties within their family, interpersonal relations, dissatisfaction with career choice and housing and financial problems appear to cause the most strain. This study provides evidence that will be useful for the development of professional counseling services in Vietnamese universities.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
