This week, AMSA and the AMSS are recognising National Mental Health Week, aiming specifically to raise awareness about the burden of mental illness among medical students, the challenges of life as a medical student and to fight the stigma associated with mental illness.
For more information, see AMSA's Mental Health website.
The AMSA National Teaching Award exists to promote excellence in medical education through recognition of an individual deemed to have made a very significant contribution to medical education in Australia.
Stress is often considered part and parcel of belonging to the medical profession. High levels of responsibility, combined with heavy workloads and long hours all contribute to stress, anxiety, depression and burnout.
Physical effects of stress can include headaches, muscle pain, fatigue, GI upset, insomnia and increased infections. Stress also increases your risk of hypertension, cardiovascular disease and other chronic diseases.
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED!
