Depression and suicide ideation represent a very important topic for students from medical schools. The studies proved that medical students are having higher rates of depression comparing to general population. Women are more prone to experience depression comparing to men and freshman students are more depressed as seniors. Avoiding medical and psychological assistance in case of depressed students is related to stigma, the lack of time, confidentiality and negative effects on professional life. Psychological tools are needed to be used in order to identify depression, burnout, anxiety and ideation thoughts among medical students and online intervention should be practiced. The aim of the study is to present a theoretical approach of this topic, focusing on factors influencing the suicide ideation among this population.

Keywords: medical student, stress, depression, suicide thoughts
