Abstract : This study aimed to examine the prevalence of daytime sleepiness among AIMST medical students and to explore its relationship with academic performance. A total of 150 consenting AIMST medical students aged 18 and above participated in this cross-sectional survey done in AIMST University, Sungai Petani, Kedah, Malaysia. All subjects answered a generalized questionnaire that was piloted and included information on demographics, Grade Point Average (GPA) and Epworth-sleepiness scale (ESS). Excessive daytime sleepiness was observed in 32.7% of the subjects. Only 7 (4.7%) of the subjects had less than 4 hours of sleep while majority (45.3%) fell within 4-6 hours. Comparison between subjects with normal sleep versus those with excessive daytime sleepiness revealed significant differences, including Grade Point Average (GPA) scores.
