This study was
carried out to determine and compare the Lifestyles of final year medicine
faculty students attending two different universities.The population of
this descriptive type study consists of final year students attending Dicle
University Medicine Faculty (DUMF) and Van Yüzüncüyıl University Medicine
Faculty (YYUMF). In 20182019 academic year, 166 and 84 intern students are
attending to DUMF and YYUMF, respectively; hence, through this number, it is
aimed to reach all population. In DUMF, 160 and in YYUMF, 62 were contacted.
The students were informed; and they confirmed the consent form and a questionnaire
containing descriptive information arranged by Walker. Turkish validity and
reliability survey, Healthy Lifestyle Behavioural Scale, was carried out by Bahar
et al. in 2008; and the students were given “Healthy Lifestyle Behavioural
Scale II” (HLSBSII), and they were asked to respond the questionsThe mean of total
scores of HLSBS in DUMF students is 127,85±19,1, while it is 121,42±18,7 in YYUMF
students (p=0,04). According to sub groups of HLSBS, the scores that the
students gained are as follows: The mean in health responsibility total score
of DUMF students is 21,05±4,9, while it is 19,08±4,2 in YYUMF
students(p=0,007). The mean in physical activity total score of DUMF students
is 16,42±4,9, while it is 17,54±4,6 in YYUMF students (p=0,123). The mean in nourishment
total score of DUMF students is 19,08±4,4, while it is 18,80±3,5 in YYUMF
students (p=0665). The mean in spiritual development of DUMF students is
26,3±4,5, while it is 24,43±5,8 in YYUMF students (p=0,027). The mean in
interpersonal relations of DUMF students is 24,94±4,5, while it is 23,10±3,6 in
YYUMF students (p=0,005). The mean in stress management of DUMF students is
19,97±3,6, while it is 19,39±4,5 in YYUMF students (p=0,370). Total HLSBS score
of the students whose family income is good is 130,85±17,5, while the total
HLSBS score of the ones whose family income is bad is 113,76±18,8(p=0,004).
While the total score of physical activity according gender is 17,52±4,9 for
men which is higher than women with 15,39±3,8 (p=0,001), inter individual
relation total point is higher with women (25,3±4,5) than man (23,91±4,2)
(p=0,001).
The
fact that the medicine faculty students should lead healthy lifestyle behaviour
is important due to the fact that they make a role model for not only
themselves but for the society as well. It is thoughtprovoking that while in
normal circumstances 204 score can be obtained from the scale, medicine faculty intern students have received
an average of 127,85 score in HLSBSII; and while in normal condition, it is
possible to get 32 scores in the physical activity sub group; medicine students
have received only 16,42 score. In order to make the individuals adopt healthy
Lifestyle, the earlier the individuals are provided with education and
opportunities, the healthier they will be.
