Medical education is perceived as being stressful with negative effects on students' mental health. However, few studies have addressed the influence of gender on the level of stress and vulnerability to stress in medical students. The aim of this research paper is to compare the level of stress in male and female medical students. It will also assess the correlation of vulnerability to stress and perceived stress in medical students. A total of 69 medical students (39 male and 30 female) of various medical colleges of Mumbai were assessed by utilizing selfadministered Perceived Stress Scale and Vulnerability to Stress Scale. The result reveals that there is significant difference in male and female medical students groups and the positive correlation was found between vulnerability to stress and perceived stress in medical students.

The aim of this research paper is to compare the level of stress in male and female medical students. It will also assess the correlation of vulnerability to stress and perceived stress in medical students. A total of 69 medical students (39 male and 30 female) of various medical colleges of Mumbai were assessed by utilizing selfadministered Perceived Stress Scale and Vulnerability to Stress Scale. The result reveals that there is significant difference in male and female medical students groups and the positive correlation was found between vulnerability to stress and perceived stress in medical students.
