COLLABORATING WITH VISION STUDY

20/05/2021

In2MedSchool is collaborating in VISION study conducted by Cardiff Healthcare International PerspectiveS (CHIPS) at Cardiff University School of Medicine, alongside HKMSUK and the British International Doctors’ Association.

"International applicants’ medical school fees have always been an overwhelming financial barrier to students. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has influenced international students' opinions about the quality of their medical education in relation to the amount of money they are paying.

We would like to invite international students and doctors to complete a 5 to 7 minute survey to better understand your perception of this issue. We aim to bring together anecdotes, quotes and stories into evidence to guide future decision making by relevant establishments to make improvements that can be implemented in medical education to support international students."

If you have any questions, please feel free to email healthcareinternationalsociety@cardiff.ac.uk.
