Research Project: Analyzing Stress in Black Women in Medical School and its Impact on Physical Health
Pursuing medical education can negatively impact health due to the amount of stress that medical students have. Combining the stress of medical school with the stress that arises from being an underrepresented minority possess a whole new set of challenges that contribute to this stress. As an underrepresented minority group in medical school, it is pivotal to conduct research regarding black women to improve their outcomes and future success in medicine. This study aims to analyze stress in black women in medical school through a survey examining said stress and its impact on mental health and physical well-being.
