Many psychiatric disorders have been found to have a surprisingly high prevalence among medical students and residents around the world. This research could shed light on why there is a greater suicide rate among medical students. Our goal is to collect information on suicide rates among medical students all around the world and publish it in a way that makes it easy to compare and contrast the various regions. Article databases including Scopus, PubMed, Google Scholar, Web of Science, and were combed for these reviews. Particular emphasis was placed on the review articles and ground-breaking studies published this decade. Many environmental and social factors have been found to have a greater impact on medical students. It is possible that a medical school's infrastructure is influenced by factors such as accommodation, peer support, academic pressure, and curriculum. Possible contributors to this phenomenon include issues of social isolation, the pressure to succeed at school, and the stresses of early independence. Psychiatric disorders like depression and suicidality may be caused by a wide variety of environmental and social factors that are not amenable to intervention by conventional medical practise. These include handling cadavers and trauma during the placement. An additional amount of pressure could be placed on a medical student as a result of the expectations of the teacher, the patient, or senior ragging. Medical students of today are the healthcare professionals of tomorrow, so it's crucial to support them both emotionally and monetarily. These literature reviews support the idea that medical schools would benefit from fostering a more open and accepting atmosphere where students feel comfortable discussing issues and finding solutions together at regular monthly meetings.
