Study on Attitudes and Barriers of Medical Students towards Conducting Research in a Medical College

Background: Evidence-based medicine is well-known as the gold standard for clinical practise. Conducting thorough research can help with this. Medical students, as future doctors, should make a big contribution, however research among medical students is lacking in terms of presentations and publications.

The goal is to discover the many hurdles to undertaking research, as well as motivational factors and attitudes.

Methods: A semi-structured questionnaire was given to three different batches of medical students in this cross-sectional observational study.

The percentage of people who agreed to participate in research was only 30%. The total attitude and barrier score among them were 3.690.29 and 3.630.42, respectively, with statistical significance revealed between genders rather than batches. The most significant stumbling block was a lack of prior research experience (91.67 percent ). Self-interest was the most common source of motivation (90.7 percent ). Conclusions: If medical students are given adequate training and facilities, they should be able to conduct more research.
