Grant awarded by the Scottish Medical Education Research Consortium (SMERC)

We received a grant for just under £10,000 to progress the work on the link between different types of stressors and identity in the medical context into 2017. The project title is: Identity-potent stressors: The interplay of professional (social) identity and specific work-related stressors; and the implications for wellbeing of doctors and medical trainees.

This is part of our major project on Self, Identity and Wellbeing in Medical Training and Practice, and more details about this grant and the rest of the project can be seen on the project website.
