Abstract

A cross sectional research design was used composed of 148 randomly selected clinical clerks in De La Salle University Medical Center. The data collection tool used was the DASS-21. The questionnaire divided into two parts, the first part included the gender as well as the current hospital rotation of the clinical clerks while the second part was a 21 item self-reported questionnaire designed to measure symptoms common to depression, anxiety and stress. Chi-square test was used for data analysis. The exposure variable was the type of rotation. The study concluded that there was a significant relationship between the type of hospital rotation and the level of anxiety perceived by the clinical clerks. Gender was not regarded as a confounder.
