Stress and its effects on medical students

What is Stress?
Before initiating the research. The thinking process involved searching for a problem affecting people in
general and in different fields, profession or demographics. Stress was identified as an issue that involves
people of all ages, sex, and race. Anxiety is now a big part in everyones life and it has a deep negative
impact that affects the productivity of people. Therefore, the spot light was focused on a major part of
societies as it affects students. Stress can be defined as a state of mental or emotional strain or tension
resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances, Stress is an inside process that happens when an
individual is confronted with a demand that is seen to surpass the resources accessible to react to it
adequately, and where inability to manage the demand successfully has imperative and undesirable
outcomes (Hurd, Monaghan, & Milan, 2007,). Stress is nowadays a term that we all hear and we all deal
with and all of us have some kind of stress going on because life in general has become more and more
demanding and many factors now overlap in our lives as people. Students particularly are considered a
vulnerable part of societies that suffer from major stress and anxiety during their academic life starting as
of sending applications and when attending classes and handling the heavy materials, assignment,
lecturers then moving on to preparing for exams and staying up at night and then the post examination
stress when waiting for grades and not to mention the stress accompanied by life outside the university
specifically when students move out to live on their own. Life outside the university involves finding a
place to live especially when in tight budget, finding new friends meeting new people studies and
personal time away from all those to go out with friends and not to mention the cultural shock when
meeting new cultures from around the world which involves different views and personalities. And one of
the most major stressors for students is the financial support which involves the long process of finding a
job not to mention student loans which are an absolute stressors because students will spend their
academic life and many years of work to re-pay that huge sum of money used for college. These and
many other personal issues which can be personal and involve family, relationships and many other can
be major stressors to students and they have to fully adapt and try to avoid and find ways to decrease or
even eliminate those factors. Stress is not only a mental state but also it has consequences on the physical
state of the body. A closer in depth about stress will be discussed later on to furtherly discuss sources of
stress and who is most affected, and how to eliminate stress.

Why the focus is on medical students?

Many reasons make medical students a more interesting topic to discuss stress than other students. One
reason may be because of the long process involved in getting in a medical school in the first place.

Students must get high grades and be involved many extracurricular activities, charity and volunteering
which is pretty much the case with all the students applying for college. But for medical students because
of the long studying time which can be up to ten years with residency, the extremely high tuition fees, the
competition amongst candidates and then not to mention the entry exams which are required such as
MCAT exam which will further have a more effect on candidates selection. Thats why medical students
are most focused in this blog. The selection for medical students also happens because in this blog I found
a way to explain some of the difficulties that I will be facing personally as I have chosen to go to medical
school. So this blog is set as a reminder for me that I need to work hard and somewhat to give a
foretelling expectations in the years to come in my path and to share with other readers who most likely
will face similar issues. And therefore this blog could be an answer to my questions and a possibly an
answer and another point of view to solve a problem I might face.

What is a research study?

The entire study is outlined around an unmistakably characterized objective, and it ought to
address a one of a kind issue, expanding upon past exploration and deductively acknowledged
basics. Whilst nothing in science can be viewed as truth, essential presumptions are made at all
phases of the examination, expanding upon generally acknowledged information. In a research,
there is constantly an association between information (data accumulated) and why the
researcher believe that the information looks as it does. Often the researcher looks at the
information gathered, and afterwards reaches a finish of why the information looks like it does.
If the researcher interjects their personal opinion, own feeling and tries to demonstrate or negate
a speculation, then they are moving into the territory of certifiable exploration. Science for
example has a tendency to utilize experimentation to study and translate a particular theory or
inquiry, permitting a progressive collection of information that gradually turns into a basic
assumption. For any study, there must be a clear procedure so that the experiment can be
replicated and the results verified and in a research there is a bit of a grey area for observationbased research, as is found in anthropology, behavioral biology and social science for example,
but they all still fit most of the other criteria but most scientific research looks at an area and
separates it into effectively tested pieces. The gradual experimentation upon these individual
pieces will permit the larger questions to be drawn closer and replied, separating an expansive
and apparently unfavorable issue, into sensible chunks, genuine research never gives a complete
answer yet supports more research in another course. Even if a hypothesis is disproved, that will
give a new answer for something and produce new thoughts, as it is refined and created.
Research is always cyclical, with the results generated leading to new areas or a refinement of
the original process. The term, research, is much stricter in science than in everyday life, it
revolves around utilizing the exploratory techniques to create hypotheses and give analyzable
results. All types of research have an objective and an extreme point, repeated and refined
experimentation continuously coming to an answer. These results are a way of gradually
uncovering truths and getting some answers concerning the procedures that drive the universe
around us. Just by having an inflexible structure to experimentation, can results be verified as
acceptable contributions to a solid research paper, they also contribute to human knowledge yet
with distinctive procedures and frameworks.

Research paper problems

Whether you are a current student or a doctoral graduate, conducting a good research is a vital
part of being an expert researcher with the abilities and validity to impact social change. Luckily,
large portions of the research challenges you will face comes from picking a subject, to finding
study participants, to staying rational all through the process. The research topic is the
establishment on which everything else rests, so its crucial to pick deliberately and wisely.
The very first and most common problem students face when writing a research paper is finding
good articles online so they could base the paper on, this process is the most important part.
Some students profoundly depend on the Internet for sources in light of its comfort. Whether
they are lazy to go to the library or the subject they are searching down has extremely restricted
resources, students swing to the Internet for an option source. Of course, not everything
published online is 100% precise. Before utilizing a site as a source, search for references and
peruse a few related sites and check for consistency. A major problem as well is that students
have problems developing a thesis statement some students discuss a general topic while some
are dealing with something specific For the most part, a thesis tells the reader what the paper is
about. Coherency and consistency is another problem faced by students in writing their research
papers. The volume of information they are receiving from their sources can lead them off topic.
Creating an outline of your main ideas and secondary points can help stay coherent and precise,
finding evidence to back the research paper up is also an issue. On the other hand if the point has
various written works and references, exhibiting proof would not be an issue. This is the
principle point why it is essential to pick a theme that has wide accessible assets and references.
References and following formatting standards are the most difficult piece of composing a
research paper. A lot of students have a tendency to forget citing their sources. This
straightforward demonstration of carelessness has a few genuine results, for example, written
falsification. To avoid such error, write the quotes you choose to use in a paper and rundown the
source immediately. It doesn't hurt to double check your work. Audit and edit your paper before
printing it. Have another person look at the paper. Ask the person to detect the slips and errors
that you have missed. Nevertheless, the key to a successful research paper is organization. Make

Thoughts on the research field

Ive decided to write my paper about something that always interested me since I was a little kid,
Medicine was the one and only thing I wanted to do in life after seeing two role models that I look too.
My uncles were, and still are the greatest supporters so I could achieve my goals, helping people and
seeing a smile on their face always makes me happy. It all started when I was back in Syria when I
volunteered in a club called SSS (students spreading smiles), we used to go to several elderly homes and
help them both mentally and physically overcoming their disability. The feeling that I used to get was
priceless I could never imagine how a simple joke or a complement would have a great effect on those
people, it made them really overcome their disability, a wise man once said laughing is the best cure for
any disease and it really is ! I felt more passionate day by day after those visits.

This ever going field is marvelous, new discoveries every day, new equipment new drugs and new
diseases and cures being discovered inspired me and made me want to discover something and name it
after me, yes this is a major reason why I want become a doctor and a big researcher to maybe discover
something one day and make a huge impact on humanity. I would love to be famous, and recognized
through these kind of things.
Goals are always achievable no matter how hard they may seem no matter what the goal is, as long as you
aim for it, be determined and work hard you will achieve it. Everyone have their ups and downs
especially me after seeing how much study I should be doing but I know for sure that those obstacles
wont stop me. After all the bad things that happened in Syria my family decided to go back to America
where I was born and raised, I knew that god had set a plan for me so I could achieve that goal here and
follow The Dream; I saw Loyola University and I fell even more in love with medicine the beauty of
the campus, the determination of other medical students even through the hard time and the stress they go
through daily didnt stop them so it wasnt going to stop me. So everything was based on a personal
experience seeing my uncles rise and gain a respected reputation among people, seeing sick people
getting cured with a thank you from the bottom of their heart pulled me into medicine, I dont think I
would ever change this goal and I will make the best out if this opportunity and let everyone who
supported me proud.

Advices for students with stress

To help students get up to speed on essential examination abilities, here's some tips to help you
discover, sort out, and utilize the data you have to assemble a good research paper.
The initial phase in composing an exploration paper is to concede you have an examination
paper. Review a calendar with a progression of developments to perform by a particular date
(e.g. discover 10 sources by September 20, completion preparatory research by October 15), and
keep to it. You will need time to get an outline of what material is out there, figure out what's in
your library, choose important material, read it, take notes, and begin assembling it and to do
a second flood of examination to clear up focuses brought up in the composition of your first
Start, don't end, with Wikipedia.
Wikipedia is an awesome spot to begin your examination invest some energy looking for
watchwords identified with your theme, skimming the connections you discover on every page,
and taking after their proposed assets. Take notes, particularly of any great sources they suggest.
The objective here is to get a decent diagram of the subject you're expounding on, and Wikipedia
is obviously better for that than most print sources, in light of its hyperlinked nature. When you
get prepared to compose, however, you ought to have vastly improved sources at your order than
Wikipedia, so abstain from referring to it in your paper.
Mine book indices.
Once you've discovered a decent, strong scholarly book or exposition on your point, you're
brilliant toward the end there will be a rundown of handfuls or many hotspots for you to gaze
upward. You can typically skim through the catalog and note down anything whose title sounds
applicable to your exploration. Scholarly creators aren't extremely imaginative with their titles,
so it is normally really simple to enlighten what their work is concerning from simply the title or

subtitle. Backtrack through and check whether you perceive any of the creators' names these
too may be worth catching up. when you begin discovering the work the first book referenced,
do likewise with their catalogs soon you'll have a rundown of much a larger number of
sources than you require (yet you require them, in light of the fact that your library might not
have all the books and diaries alluded to, and between library credit is so ease back as to be
pointless for understudies who need to wrap up before the end of the semester.
Manage one piece at once.
Try not to attempt to handle your subject at the same time. Get a sufficient feeling of the subject
that you can make a layout of the things you have to comprehend, and afterward manage every
piece all alone. You'll discover the associations between the pieces when you compose your first

Advices for students

Have an examination address as a top priority.
The hypothesis part must rise up out of your topic of research, when you have information before
you. At the same time, you require a sort of "working postulation" while doing your examination
an inquiry you need to reply. As you go over new material, inquire as to whether it would seem
that it will help you answer your inquiry. Anything that looks pertinent however doesn't help
answer your inquiry you can return. It's enticing to accumulate a considerable measure of
foundation material, and some is important, however an excessive amount of will waste your
time without adding to your examination. Get maybe a couple decent hotspots for foundation
(your beginning Wikipedia looking ought to be satisfactory as a rule) and after that keep
concentrated by meeting expectations towards a solution for your examination question.
Utilize a framework.
Begin your examination with a thought of how you plan to gather and arrange your notes and
information. Despite the fact that I've composed papers utilizing list cards some time recently,
my most loved framework is to utilize a one-subject journal. At the highest point of a crisp page,
I compose the full bibliographic reference for a book or paper, then duplicate quotes and
compose notes both labeled with the page numbers they originated from blended with
contemplations and thoughts that strike me as I'm perusing. I'd love to utilize a PC all the more
effectively while doing examination, and have manufactured databases and attempted wikis and
outliners and different sorts of programming, however I've never discovered a framework that
functioned admirably I invested more energy fiddling with the product than accomplishing work.
Whatever framework you choose, verify that each quote, truth, and believed is fixed somehow to
its source so you can undoubtedly embed references while you're structuring the paper.
Know your assets, strengths and weaknesses.
Invest some energy becoming more acquainted with what assets, both online and logged off,
your library to offer. Most libraries offer visits to understudies, or converse with an exploration
curator or at any rate, stroll through the library to get a vibe for what is the place, giving careful
consideration to the microfilm storehouse and periodicals, which you'll utilize a considerable
measure over the span of most research ventures. Most college libraries likewise subscribe to
various scholarly databases, and most are presently open online become more acquainted with

the examination material you can access from home, for occurrence, holds full-message
photographic duplicates of several diaries, all effectively searchable. There's nothing truly like
considering something amidst the night, signing on, and printing out a few applicable diary
articles to survey in the morning. Form thought book and drafts
as you begin truly getting into your venture, your brain will begin beating through what you're
perusing, notwithstanding when you're not intentionally dealing with it. In case you're similar to
me, you'll be struck by sudden disclosures at any rate helpful times in the restroom, in the
shower, at the market. Then again while getting prepared for bed. Keep a little scratch pad and a
pen with you all over the place scribble down notes at whatever point a thought enters your
thoughts, and move these notes into your exploration log (or programming, or whatever) when
you can.

Advices for students

Ask for help and proof reading.
Most educators spend their available time sitting tight in dissatisfaction for an understudy to drop
in and issue them something to legitimize the time they're obliged to keep an open hour be that
understudy! Request help in discovering and assessing sources, or for help in making sense of
what to do with the material you've gathered in this way. Another regularly disregarded asset is
your agreeable neighborhood administrator. Custodians are, in my estimation, the best
individuals on Earth they know the material in their charge advances and in reverse, they are
profoundly concerned with seeing it utilized, and they have submitted their lives to making data
more accessible. Most administrators will be content to help you discover important material for
your venture, and some will even find particular bits of elusive data for you. Keep in mind to
approach your kindred understudy for help, as well a portion of the may have run over work
straightforwardly pertinent to your subject.
Make sure its valid and up to date:
Pay consideration on the production date of your material while its alright to utilize more
seasoned material, in a perfect world you'd like the main part of your references to originate from
the most recent 10 years or somewhere in the vicinity. On the off chance that exploration in your
subject appears to become scarce 10 years or somewhere in the vicinity back, it may be on
account of the field proceeded onward, however it additionally may be on the grounds that
financing open doors vanished, a noteworthy analyst kicked the bucket, or any number of
coincidental reasons. One trap is to Google the significant scientists whose work you've
discovered and check whether you can discover their landing pages most will rundown late
distributions and their ebb and flow research exercises it may be the case that somebody has a
book going to turn out, or reports distributed in dark or outside diaries.
Assuming this is the case, you may attempt between library credit, or at times, take a stab at
reaching the specialist herself and inquire as to whether they can send you a draft or
reproduction. Be obliging, clarify what you're taking a shot at and what you're attempting to
discover, where your exploration has taken you in this way, and what light you trust their work
can shed on your theme. Try not to request a rundown of references or what your postulation
ought to be no one needs to do an understudy's work for them.

These tips will help put a respectable catalog and an assortment of notes and information readily
available when you take a seat to review your paper. Albeit assessing sources is likewise a vital
part of doing great exploration, it will need to sit tight for its own post, as its too huge a theme to
decrease to a visual cue here. A bookkeeper or your teacher can help, particularly on the off
chance that you confine yourself to books and diaries accessible in your college library. Web
sources are trickier, as it requires no exertion at all nowadays to set up an expert looking site
saying whatever you need; until you're alright with the material in your picked handle, its best to
stick to known sources like Wikipedia and destinations embraced by your library or division, on
the off chance that you utilize the Internet by any means. Keep in mind, however, that until a
couple of years prior, the majority of us figured out how to do research with no Internet by any
stretch of the imagination and hand written and referencing from books and paper articles not
finding them online in simple clicks.

The Evolution of medicine

At the start of the 21st century, epidemics of infectious diseases continue to be a threat to
humanity, HIV/AIDS, avian influenza, breast cancer are the most common diseases in recent
years; civil wars and natural catastrophes made this threat even worse. Tourism, weather changes
and the concentration of populations in refugee camps, the development of new human
pathogens, and ecologic changes, which frequently go hand in hand with economic
advancement, contribute to the rise of infectious diseases and epidemics. Few individuals admire
that medicine has progressed more since World War II than in all of prior history. More current
medications and devices and better understanding of disease mechanisms have tremendously
enhanced the care of patients. Anti-rejection drugs have permitted organ transplant surgery to
prosper. New medications are just piece of the story. A million test tube babies would not have
been born without the "in vitro treatment" system presented earlier this century. Furthermore,
vaccinations presented lately ensure youngsters against contaminations that include hepatitis A
and B, measles, chicken pox. Imaging technology additionally has reduced the requirement for
exploratory surgery to recognize different abnormalities. Such operations regularly obliged a
long cut and a protracted recovery. Presently, CT scans can detect an abdominal abscess and have
decreased what once obliged three operations to one. Better imaging has likewise permitted
radiologists to do procedures they couldn't have envisioned. Medicinal instruments produced
using fiber optics have enabled specialists to look into numerous regions of the body that
beforehand were blocked off or that required major surgery. One sample, includes the repair of
torn ligaments and tissues in knees and different joints. Colonoscopy, recognizes intestinal
polyps before they get to be malignant. Artificial joints is probably the best of it all it is now
implanted in patients whose hips and knees have been severely damaged by arthritis and injuries, or
people who have lost a part of their body from catastrophically events. Video monitors and
laparoscopic instruments allow surgeons to remove diseased gall bladders through a few small
incisions instead of one long cut that severed abdominal muscles and led to long and painful healing.
To do the new procedures, surgeons had to develop new techniques and other skills completely not
the same as those utilized in old operations and surgeries. Some real advances in surgery did not
include instruments or technology. Short acting sedatives like fentanyl now permit numerous
patients to go home a couple of hours after an operation. Surgeons were learning the critical
significance of observing liquid and crucial chemicals known as electrolytes prior and then afterward
an operation. Such regulation is presently a standard before any operation. Technology have
impacted our lives in many ways but most importantly it helped human beings live a longer healthier

Research process
Honestly, finding the research was half the battle. It seems so difficult to write a research paper, when all
it is writing one giant literary criticism. Once all of the information was retrieved writing the paper just
came to me. That was my experience writing this research paper. I hated it when I had to go and find the
research because writing such paper isnt about what you really think or know it about what others think
and concluded, but now that I did find sources, its cake. I really think that the whole research process
using different websites and tools was really interesting, I didnt really know at first that you can do so
much. Sorting my sources and my personal ideas using Popplet for example allowed me personally to
really organize my thoughts. Noodle tools was also really helpful with citing the sources and organizing
the notes to get a better formatting for the research paper. Writing notes regularly on noodle tools after
reading the information helped me keep in mind what I want to write in my paper, taking notes through
that process helped me sort and put everything important together. Picking a subject that I felt passionate
about something I enjoy certainly will show in my final product, making it more likely that the paper is
going to be successful hopefully. Quotations really helped me back up my point as well. I wont say that
the overall process was really easy to do with all those websites and new things we had to learn and then
work on and I dont really think that it was an easy process exporting my notes into my research paper
and by that I mean even with my headlinings and my outlines I still had to reframe my paper and work
on formatting it properly with resorting my ideas all again But the pros were way more than the cons and
I enjoyed learning new things, it felt hard at first but it was really manageable and once I had everything
all together the paper really did write itself for me, I enjoyed the learning experience because this was the
first time that I work on a paper using multiple websites and search engines like Ebsco and the COD
library data base, I always used google but now I learned how really a good paper should be written.
