Objective : The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of social anxiety disorder (SAD)and its association with psychosocial factors including self-esteem, ego-resiliency, and social support in asample of medical students. Methods : A total of 405 medical students were included in this study. Subjects were asked to complete aself-reported questionnaire, measures of the Social Phobia Inventory (SPIN), the Rosenberg’s Self-EsteemScale (RSES), the Ego-Resiliency Scale (ERS), and the Duke-UNC Functional Social Support Questionnaire(DUFSS). The SAD and non-SAD group were defined using the SPIN score of 25 as a cut-off. The multipleregression analyses were performed to examine the association of self-esteem, ego-resiliency, and social supportwith SAD symptoms. Results : A total of 79 subjects (19.5%) were identified with SAD. The total RSES score, ERS score, andDUFSS score were significantly lower in the SAD group than the non-SAD group. The total SPIN scorenegatively correlated with the total RSES score (r=-0.481, p<0.001), the ERS score (r=-0.417, p<0.001), andthe DUFSS score (r=-0.406, p<0.001). In the multiple regression, SAD symptoms were associated with selfesteem(β=-0.549, p<0.001), ego-resiliency (β=-0.395, p<0.001), and social support (β=-0.346, p<0.001). Conclusion : This study revealed the prevalence of SAD and its negative association with self-esteem,ego-resiliency, and social support among medical students. Our findings indicate that improving self-esteemand ego-resiliency as well as perceived social support may contribute to the management of SADsymptoms among medical students.
