This project explores the experience of ‘the class of COVID’ new medical graduates who are starting work in the UK during the COVID-19 crisis. It is led by Newcastle University School of Medical Education, with colleagues from Exeter University, Plymouth University and Queen’s University Belfast. It is supported by the GMC, Medical Schools Council and other stakeholders, and will explore with questionnaires and interviews how starting practice at this unprecedented time affects new doctors. This is the only study with the support of all national bodies responsible for trainee doctors.
