Adhikari, A., Dutta, A., Sapkota, S., Chapagain, A., Aryal, A., & Pradhan, A. (2017). Prevalence of poor mental health among medical students in Nepal: a cross-sectional study.BMC MEDICAL EDUCATION,17. -017-1083-0As stated in Bernd, du Prel & Blettner (2009), the term “study design” is not used consistently in the scientific literature, it is sometimes restricted to the use of a suitable type of study and can also mean the overall plan for all procedures involved in the study (pg. 184). In the article by Adhikari et al., (2017), a cross-sectional study was conducted at KIST Medical College and teaching hospital to determine the prevalence of mental disorders among medical students in Nepal. The cross-sectional design is a study design in which data is collected at one point in time; sometimes used to infer change over time when information is collected from different age or developmental groups (Polit & Beck, 2017, pg.725).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
