The objective of this research is to assess the level of stress among women doctors, with special reference to obstetrician/gynecologists. Medical profession is far more complicated and sensitive than it actually appears to be. Doctors face challenges in many forms. Doctors are not immune to work related health and psychological issues. It is only quite logical that doctors will be plagued with mental and physical illnesses caused by the very nature of their profession. Women are evolving in all professions and proving their mettle. Women have to cope up with
innumerable demands exerted by people around them. The biological framework of women is not designed to bear too much of such exertion, both physical and mental. However, the emergence of new challenges for women has no bounds. One such important issue is “Stress”. Twenty-first century is the “Era of Stress”. Medical field is not a new field to women, but the issues related to it are staggering in
the current scenario. It is needless to question whether women doctors experience stress or not. It will be only erudite to assess the extent of stress experienced by women doctors, the significant reasons behind their stress and also the strategies they adopt to cope up with the stress. A survey was conducted to explore and analyse the intensity of stress experienced by women obstetrician/gynecologists in
Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, well known world over for its multi-specialty hospitals and medical services. The study revealed that women obstetrician/gynecologists in general experience stress due to various stressors and adopt different coping strategies as well to manage stress.
