What is Eustress

Handbook of Research on Developing Competencies for Pre-Health Professional Students, Advisors, and Programs
The beneficial or positive form of stress. This is the type of stress that elicits an excite-and-delight or challenge response (Cowell & Millard, 2016). With the challenge response the body is energized in anticipation of an upcoming situation that tests one’s abilities. The stress hormones that get released help access mental resources to increase focus and access physical reserves to improve performance (Davis, 2018).

Addressing the mental health and well-being of pre-health students is critically important to ensuring their success through college and entry into advanced training or the workforce. Pre-health students represent some of the most motivated, involved, and engaged students on campus. Retaining these students and ensuring a positive undergraduate experience may help improve the development of a robust and diverse healthcare workforce. This chapter considers academic stress points and common mental health concerns among pre-health and graduate-level clinical students and discusses the implications of poor mental health outcomes among these student populations. This chapter is the first in a two-part series designed to understand the experiences of health science students and potential adverse health outcomes they may experience. The second chapter in this series considers practical approaches for pre-health advisors to foster and encourage well-being among students.
