There is growing evidence that students and qualified doctors’ are experiencing high levels of workplace stress and burnout. Many medical students find student training and subsequently the transition to foundation year difficult. Medical schools have been tasked by the GMC to teach personal resilience as part of professional development. Despite this responsibility, it is far from clear whether medical schools have in fact integrated topics such as stress management, resilience training and self-care into their professional development curriculum. As far as we can establish this is the first meeting of UK medical educators to specifically address this topic.
