Abstract:   (170 Views)
Aims: Research capacity building and self-efficacy are essential skills for medical students that help them greatly to get involved in research. The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between academic stress and research self-efficacy in medical students through the mediating role of research spirit.
Methods: This descriptive-correlational study used path analysis to examine the relationships between the variables. The statistical population covered all postgraduate medical students in Ilam in the academic year 2022-2023. Among them, 301 were selected using convenience sampling. They completed the research self-efficacy scale, the academic stress scale, and the research spirit questionnaire. Evaluation of the proposed model was done using path analysis.
Findings: The results showed a negative correlation between academic stress and research spirit (P<0.001). There was a significant positive correlation between research spirit and research self-efficacy (P<0.001), whereas there was no significant correlation between the direct path of academic stress to research self-efficacy. Moreover, there was a significant correlation between the indirect path connecting academic stress and research self-efficacy together through research spirit (P<0.01).
Conclusions: The results suggest that the proposed model has a good fit and is a major step toward identifying factors influencing research self-efficacy among medical students.
