Mindfulness for Medical Students

2018-08-08 16:21:13 | BioPortfolio


Burnout is common among medical students. Previous studies had shown that mindfulness based interventions may improve burnout and quality of life in medical students. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is one of the most often used mindfulness based interventions.

Medical students in the Chinese University of Hong Kong are invited to a MBCT on voluntary basis. They will be asked to fill in questionnaire that measures burnout, depression/anxiety, quality of life, and mindfulness at beginning and end of the MBCT. The pre-group and post-group data will be compared and analysed
