A total of 364 postgraduate medical interns from 17 hospitals in Metro Manila answered self-administered questionnaires on the Internship Training Program. This included current work experience, sources of and responses to stress and the tendency to be depressed. Results showed satisfaction in the volume and diversity of patients and, dissatisfaction primarily in the lack of financial benefits. Passing the board examination and sleep deprivation were the most common sources of stress while the most common response to stress was to go on with the usual routine. Female interns tend to be more depressed. This findings will help promote continuous support to the medical interns during their stressful training.
