Objective: To explore the relationship between social support, psychological resilience and depression of medical students. Methods: 1233 medical college students from medical and non-medical schools were randomly selected by self-efficacy scale, social support scale, family function scale and Psychological Resilience Scale. Results: there was no significant difference in scores of SAS, SDS, SF-36 and SSRS between medical students and non-medical students (P > 0.05). There were significant differences in scores of some scales among medical students of different genders, nationalities and places of origin (P < 0.05). The results of regression analysis showed that the total score of SSRS had a negative impact on the SAS score, subjective support, objective support, and support utilization had a negative impact on the SDS score, and the total score of SSRS had a positive impact on the score in the physiological field. Conclusion: Medical students' psychological toughness is generally high, and high self-efficacy, good social support, and emotional involvement of excessive family functions are important factors affecting psychological toughness.
