Abstract

Objectives: This study is aimed at knowing the current situation of medical students’ sleep quality. Methods: The multistage sampling survey on 1,250 medical students from a college in Tangshan is conducted by using the stratification—the cluster sampling method and adopting PSQI. Results: Among the 1,155 investigated students, 23.98 % of them have sleeping problems. The significant differences in subjective sleep quality (t = −2.557, P < 0.05) and sleep medication (t = 3.076, P < 0.01) were found in different genders; students in different grades gained different sleep scores and PSQI, and the significant differences were found; PSQI in grade one is lower than that of other grades, and the significant differences in sleep scores were found in different majors (F = 13.564, P < 0.01). Conclusions: Sleep quality of medical college students generally is not good.
