Abstract

Abstract
Objective: To identify factors that have influenced on development of emotional intelligence in medical students.
Methods: Seventy medical students in academic year 2003 at Lampang Hospital completed self-reported questionnaires, the Thai Emotional Intelligence Screening Questionnaire. The data
were analyzed by using spearman correlation.
Results: Mean score of nine dimensions of emotional intelligence was within normal range. Extracurricular activities, self-study from the internet and standard textbooks, sharing trouble situations with friends from different faculties, number of siblings, economic status and good family relationship were positively correlated with many aspects of emotional intelligence. But, age, class level in medical school and GPAX were negatively correlated with various dimensions
of emotion intelligence.
Conclusions: Many factors were positively correlated with emotional intelligence that should be encouraged to promote development of emotional intelligence in medical students
