A medical course is a long and demanding journey that will test you to your limits and change you forever. You will become a completely different person capable of working as a professional in a high pressure environment where you must gain and maintain the trust of your patients and colleagues. This requires knowledge, skills and appropriate attitudes. Some attitudes and behaviours must be expressed from the very start of the course, and this section lays out your responsibilities in that regard.
One of the main responsibilities you have, however, is to look after yourself, and we do not expect you to do this unaided. This section also lays out the wide variety of support services available to you, so we may help you through any difficulties that you may encounter.
