The Health of Medical Students – #UKMedEd Chat 29.11.12

This week’s #ukmeded chat is on the health of medical students and we’re delighted to have Dr Mhairi Hepburn (@DundeePsych) helping to lead the discussion.

Mhairi would like to leave the discussion as open as possible, but has posted a few questions to get you thinking:

Do medical students have different healthcare needs to other students?

How have your health problems affected your studies/work/approach to life?

What do you think medical schools can do to help students with health problems?

We hope you can join us at 9pm on Thursday 29 November.

    Thanks Mhairi. I think it is wise to point out the #ukmeded declaration https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ug1pqqctaiG-8f6WAeG1nOnhjPzAhrrS5p_WBCGx5pw/edit It’s important to remember that the discussion is public and all tweets are archived. This might be particularly relevant if discussing a potentially sensitive topic such as your health.
