This study used a case control research design. Stratified random sampling was utilized in order to select the participants who answered the research questionnaire. The sampling population was divided into strata (female and male) and then into substrata (science-related and non-science related undergraduate course). The students who met the inclusion criteria and who were present on the date of the accomplishment of questionnaire were selected as participants. Odds ratio, measures of central tendency, dispersion, t-test, and chi-square were utilized. The study concluded that there was a causative relationship between the undergraduate course and stress levels based on the odds ratio. However, the estimate confidence level revealed that the observed difference was not statistically significant and there was no sufficient evidence to conclude the alternative hypothesis. It concluded that there was no significant relationship between the undergraduate course and stress levels of first year medical students in De La Salle Health Sciences Institute College of Medicine A.Y. 2016-2017.
