This study aims to determine the relationship between physical activity and sleep quality of medical students of Tarumanagara Medical School.

The subjects of the study were 96 students from the 2019-2020 class of Tarumanagara University School of Medicine, 17-24 years old, using a cluster random sampling method. This study used the GPAQ (Global Physical Activity Questionnaire) questionnaire to assess physical activity and the PSQI (Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index) questionnaire to assess sleep quality. Data analysis used Pearson Chi-Square test with 95% confidence level. The results showed 37 respondents (38.5%) were quite active and 59 (61.5%) were less active. In terms of sleep quality, 39 respondents (40.6%) had good sleep quality and 57 respondents (59.4%) had poor sleep quality. The results of Chi-Square analysis showed a significant relationship between physical activity and sleep quality (p=0.003) and respondents with less physical activity had a 1756 times higher risk of experiencing poor sleep quality than respondents with sufficient physical activity.
