What we do:

The unit provides a focus for all those with an interest in supporting medical students and doctors in training with mental health problems.

In particular we are interested in

  1. Bringing together a critical mass of people with varied background and training who are better able to carry out research into support for medical students and doctors in training with mental health concerns as a group than they can individually.
  2. To identify appropriate sources of research funds
  3. To jointly write successful bids for research funding
  4. To liaise with national bodies involved in supporting medical students and doctors in training to include BMA, GMC, Doctors Support Network, the Physician Health Programme and others
  5. To provide an identifiable point of contact for national and international bodies with an interest in doctors’ and medical students’ mental health
  6. To host national and international academic meetings for those interested in doctors’ and medical students’ mental health.
