07 - Why are doctors in training stressed?

This week we talk at length about doctors in training and the high rates of stress that they experience. We've tried to give an overview of the literature and so it is a grab bag of articles looking at resilience factors, prevalence of distress, emotional coping strategies as well as emerging treatments. We then take a lengthy detour (or perhaps more aptly termed a cul de sac) into a discussion about what doctors and psychologists/psychiatrists wear in our segment 'things we came across'.
