Abstract

In a cross sectional study, 188 second year medical students from DLSHSI were asked to answer a questionnaire with questions about age, pre-medicine degree and levels of confidence. Stratified random sampling was used to identify the respondents. The Revised Janis -Filed Scale was the actual questionnaire used to collect the data. Data was analysed using frequency distribution, percentage distribution, and chi-square. Low levels of confidence were more prevalent among non-human biology graduates than the human biology graduates. The male gender of the second year medical students was less likely to have low levels of confidence. The second year medical students with ages 20 years old and younger were also more likely to have low levels of confidence. Overall, among the second year medical students of DLSHSI College of Medicine, there was a relationship between being a female non-human biology graduate and having an age of 20 years old and younger and have low levels of confidence. However, there relationships were minimal and statistically insignificant.
