Psychological well-being and health promoting behavior is an important aspect of human health and well-being. Significant aspects of health status and quality of life are health promoting practices and psychosocial well-being. The salutogenic notion focuses on those aspects or variables that assist a person in coping with stress, various physical and psychological difficulties or even infectious exposure. This hypothesis attempts to understand why are certain people able to keep? If not recover, their health in the face of adversity. To calculate SOC of students in dental and medical students. To assess the stress management part of health promoting behaviors of these students. This is a cross sectional study, undergraduate students ageing from 18 to 24 years of age will be selected and correlation between sense of coherence and health promoting behavior Pearson’s correlation will be found out. It is expected that students with a higher sense of coherence score will exhibit better stress management and health promotion. Hence we will be able to find association between sense of coherence and stress management as a health promoting behavior in these students.
