Empirical research on the sources of stress among US medical doctors is scarce. Most research studies reported in leading journals were done on doctors from other countries. The present study explored the sources of stress among American medical doctors. Six factors, workload, work environment, hospital, nature of work, external environment and role conflict, were extracted from 30 items on sources of stress. Workload explained the maximum amount of variance followed by work environment. Workload was perceived as the highest source of stress and experience was negatively related to stress. The findings suggest that better management of time may help reduce stress for American medical doctors.
