ABSTRACT: Occupational burnout is a syndrome resulting from chronic work-related stress, with symptoms characterized by “feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion; increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job; and reduced professional efficacy.” This survey study was conducted among different medical and dental college students. The Maslach Burnout Inventory – Student Survey (MBI-SS), was used to assess the Burnout syndrome. All the data was analyzed with SPSS Ver. 23.0. A total of 80 medical and dental students participated in the study. There were 49 males and 31 females. The mean age was 22.99±1.187 years. The mean burnout score in case of emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and low personal accomplishments varied greatly with gender, age, hostel life, stress during studies, family support etc.
