||The aim of this study was to explore factors associated with occupational stress among Chinese doctors in public hospitals. A cross-sectional study was conducted during the period of May/June 2008. The study population comprised 1989 doctors registered and working in the 20 national hospitals in a Chinese province, who were given a questionnaire pertaining to occupational stress that was assessed based on the Chinese Version Personal Strain Questionnaire (PSQ), demographic characteristics, work situations, occupational roles and personal resources. The response rate was 79.8% (1587 respondents; 673 men, 914 women). The general linear model (GLM) was employed to explore the factors related to occupational stress. All data analysis was performed separately in men and women. Findings are discussed. The results indicate that the major factors associated with occupational stress differ between male and female doctors in China.
