Abstract
Objective: To determine the prevalence of burnout and its association with academic motivation and academic achievement among medical students.
Methodology: This correlational, cross-sectional study was conducted among 269 medical students of Shifa Tameer-e-Millat University, Islamabad through a non-probability convenient sampling technique. Copenhagen Burnout Inventory Scale (CBI), Academic Motivation Scale (AMS), and recent Academic results were used as data collection tools. Data analysis was performed through SPSS Statistics 21.
Results: Mean age of the participants was 20.892.261 years with 51 (19%) males and 218 (81%) females. Students in their clinical years showed the highest levels of studies-related burnout, with the mean of 50.3017.83 relative to other levels of burnout. Regarding motivation, non-clinical students displayed the highest levels of intrinsic motivation-to know with a mean of 5.22.06. Clinical students reported higher academic achievement with the mean of 3.170.52 CGPA (Cumulative Grade point average). A statistically significant difference was found regarding burnout and academic motivation (p<0.05) but was not found in academic achievement among clinical and non-clinical students.
