Abstract: Background: Burnout syndrome is a psychological construct characterized by emotional exhaustion, cynicism, and academic efficacy. Medical students may experience burnout syndrome leading to emotional and physical exhaustion and detachment.

Material and Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional survey using the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES) to assess self-esteem and Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Survey (MBI-SS) to assess burnout syndrome among third-year undergraduate medical students at a private medical university in Banten Province, Indonesia. Statistical analyses were performed with SPSS software, version 21.0.Results: Of the 88 medical students, self-esteem analysis revealed that the majority of the respondents had medium-to-high self-esteem (80.7 and 5.7%, respectively), yet 82 (93.2%) of the respondents reported a burnout incidence. Association between respondents? self-esteem and burnout incidence has shown to be statistically significant (P-value = 0.001). Conclusions: Self-esteem plays arolein the incidence of burnout syndrome among medical students. This study may be used as a guide for improving a better justification of screening and prevention, intervention to augment their self-esteem, and, subsequently, decreasing the burnout incidence.
