Abstract: Due to the advancement of technological changes in the health care sector, health care professionals such as doctors, nurses, technicians, etc, are expected to work more intensely and successfully deliver more. The present study focuses on stress among young doctors due to rapid technological advent and intense industrialisation, especially in the metropolitan city Chennai. Data was collected from eighty seven young doctors through structured questionnaire. In the modern era, people who reside in the metropolitan city like Chennai are well educated, wealthy and aware of new innovative and sophisticated equipments, medicine, facilities, etc. and these are inevitable part of technological development. Hence the doctors have to update themselves in all field related technologies. They feel stressed physically and mentally when there is a lacuna in the competitive environment.
