This study by the Individual Support Programme at the School of Medicine, Cardiff University was published in June 2013.
It was developed to look at medical students’ perspectives on risk factors that impact on their health and wellbeing during training. The objective was to develop a formative tool for UK medical schools that could be used as a basis for enhancing student wellbeing using quality improvement principles.
