The most and least stressful sources, respectively, relate to areas of unpleasant feelings and interpersonal communication. Most stressors were related to "distressing sick patients", "cleaning the patient after stool deification", " instructor note in the presence of doctors and personnel" and "communicating with the instructor" respectively.
