Description

Resilience for medical undergraduates: preparing our medical students for the NHS workplace

The background

There has never been a more challenging time for doctors in training. They have increasing levels of exhaustion, disillusionment, burnout and mental and physical health problems at ever-earlier stages. As teachers and trainers we know that many of them feel under-prepared for the realities of life in practice and some find it impossible to cope. How should medical schools respond?

Raising the profile and finding solutions

We are hosting a symposium for colleagues working on the frontline. Our aim is to understand what is currently happening across the UK. We would like the meeting to explore what progress has been made since last year’s symposium, which looked at provision of support for medical students and emerging curriculum development, and to continue mapping the current state of UK developments in the field. There will be reflections on ongoing work in the various centres and opportunity to build networks based on positive practice.

This year’s symposium will be jointly hosted by the Unit for study of doctors’ and medical students’ mental health and wellbeing, Swansea University, Westminster Centre for Resilience, and the Point of Care Foundation and will build on previous work looking at provision of support for medical students relating to mental and physical health.

The programme for the day will include:


  • Student Panel
  • Presentations
  • Key note speakers
  • World Café
  • Open Space


As we want the symposium to stay small, we are inviting no more than two delegates from each medical school. Please fill in your biography details before booking your ticket: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SymposiumBiographies


**Please note ticket bookings are provisional until we receive your biography details and send you a confirmation email.**
