Liz Kowalczyk writing in the Boston Globe reported that future physicians appear to “suffer depression, or depressive symptoms, at higher rates than the general population,” a meta-analysis involving “nearly 200 smaller studies from 47 countries” suggests.  In fact, about “27 percent” of medical students appear to suffer from “depression in medical school,” the research revealed.  The findings were published in the Journal of the American Medication Association.
