Introduction: Mental health is an important factor in harmonious relationship with others, in personal and social environments. The most important factors affecting mental health are stress and anxiety. Operating room is considered as one of the most stressful wards of a hospital in studies. The aim of this study was to determine and compare the mental health of freshmen and senior operating room and anesthesia majors' students and related factors in Guilan University of Medical Sciences to promote the mental health of this important group, which can also be associated with patients' health.
Methods: This was a descriptive-analytical and cross-sectional study in 2015 and was conducted with census method on all freshmen and senior operating room and anesthesia students of Guilan University of Medical Sciences (119). Data collection tools included demographic information and General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-28). SPSS software and Pearson chi-squared and Fisher's exact tests were used for data analysis.
Results: The results showed that the number of students in the operating room who had mental health (75.6%) was more than the anesthesiology students (57.9%). While the relationship of gender and location was significant with social health subscales (P = 0.035 and P = 0.44, respectively), the relationship between mental health and academic major, as well as with other demographic characteristics was not significant.
Conclusions: The implications of performance of operating room and anesthesiology student in the near future will be associated with the health system. Because of the presence or absence of a significant relationship in some demographic characteristics with mental health and its subscales, more studies need to be conducted assessing the factors affecting the mental health of this group for proper planning, aimed at improving the health of this valuable community.
