AvailabilityFully booked  Add to waiting list
SubjectCPD - Supervisors
DescriptionImposter Syndrome is extremely common in medicine with reportedly 97% of medical students admitting to struggling with it. This is probably not surprising, as medicine is an area of achievement where knowledge is ever expanding and growing, so there is pressure on medical staff to keep pace. There is a tendency for those struggling with Imposter Syndrome to keep quiet and hide this fact, even though it is a completely normal phenomenon. This failure to acknowledge Imposter Syndrome can mean that it develops into anxiety and stress, which can in turn lead to more sick leave. This programme looks at what Imposter Syndrome is and how simple techniques can make a difference.
