The mental health of medical students deserves attention because the problems in students may negatively influence learning ability and create consequences for later adjustment to doctor's role. The purpose of this study is to understand the stress, copying, self-esteem and subjective general well-being of medical students and compare them with other students group (students of law, science and humanities). The results was as follows : First, medical students did not report more stress but they use less copying strategy than other students group. Second, there was no differences in stress, copying, self-esteem and general well-being between high and low academic achievement group in medical students. Futhermore, study-related stress had more close relationship with self-esteem, general well-being. Third, the preparatory course students showed lower score in general well-being, especially health, cheerful-depressive mood domain. These results imply that mental health promotion programmes focused in guiding adjustment for the preparatory course students are helpful. And psychiatric, academic counseling should be made available to them. It can lead to an improvement in our health care delivery system. The need of additional longitudinal research is discussed.
