Thoughts and insights from medical students
Students in Research
As a medical student, we are given 3 months to conduct our own research in any given field. This is an exciting opportunity, as it gives us 3 months to concentrate on another aspect, and a significant part, of medicine. Without research, medicine would remain stagnant, unchanged... without research, we would not be able to improve our services and provide better patient care.
I am very thankful to the GMC who have made it mandatory for students to spend a certain amount of their course to be involved in research somehow, even if it is just a student project. Some students may decide on doing an audit or literature review and I think that's fantastic. These are all elements of medicine which make it... well, good medicine!
Thus, I would be very grateful if clinicians/students could take the time to participate in my student study project on 'Clinicians' Perceptions of Pregancy Loss':
A questionnaire has been produced by The University of Manchester Medical School as part of a 4th year medical student project.
This questionnaire will help us to understand your feelings towards pregnancy loss in women and their partners (e.g. miscarriage, still birth, ectopic pregnancy) and will be used as pilot data for developing a more detailed survey that could be used to inform professional education programmes.
This survey requires you to tick the box which applies to you. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes of your time. Your completed survey will be submitted anonymously and at no point will we be asking for any personally identifiable information.
By clicking the website link below, you can obtain further information about this pilot study and a consent form. By consenting to participating in this study, you will then have access to the questionnaire.
The clinicians eligible to participate in this study include clinicians working in the areas listed below, medical students and student midwives only:
If you have any questions or concerns about the study please email Miss Fahmida Miah (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Your opinions are valuable to us and your time is much appreciated.
