Abstract

Aims: to assess the burnout syndrome among dental students and to compare and correlate the burnout
parameters according to the age and year of study.
Materials and Methods: all male undergraduate students (n=125) from the college of dentistry participated
in the cross sectional study. Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Version (MBI-SS) questionnaire was used
as an instrument in this study. SPSS 23, software was used to analyze descriptive data; Pearson’s correlation
coefficient was used to correlate three sub scales of MBI-SS with age and year of study.
Results: the response rate was 100%, statistically significant correlation was found for emotional exhaustion
with age and year of study, and in year wise comparison only second year showed high depersonalization
and diminished personal accomplishment. Positive correlation among all three sub scales was also seen.
Conclusion: emotional exhaustion increased with the increase in age and year of study, among all the study
