Methods: The present analytic cross sectional study aimed to find out the trend of psychological status of new entering students of Shaheed Sadoughi University of medical science during five years (2003-2007). Data of 1797 students Gathered by General Health Questionnaire (CHQ-28) in advisory & guidance center of university were analyzed. The association of demographic factors such as age, sex, marital status and educational characteristics with level of GHQ score was studied.
Results: Out of 1797, 1328 (%74) and 469 (%26) were males and females respectively. Median age of subjects was 19 years and %16 of those married. Overall, %35/4 of students showed GHQ
³23, of those %31/3 were boys and %36/3 girls (p=.03). The highest relative frequency of GHQ³23 was related to students of year of 2005 (%45) and the least was for 2002 (%30) (p=.002). %42/2, %34/1, %34/7 and % 33/4 of students of Nursing and Midwifery, Medical &dental, Paramedical and Health had GHQ level of ³23 where the observed differences was found to be statistically significant (p=.04). No such a significant association was showed when the comparison was done within singular years.
Conclusion: our findings revealed that over one- third of new entering students had GHQ score of
³23 for whom the specials supportive programmers should be considered. Moreover, an increasing trend was shown in the frequency of GHQ level of ³23 among new entering students from 2002 to 2007.
