Exploration of Wellbeing, Help-Seeking Behaviours and Perception of Available Services Among Undergraduate Medical Students

Researchers at UNSW Sydney are seeking volunteers from first, second or third-year medical students to participate in a research study. The study will help us learn about their levels of wellbeing and help-seeking behaviour especially during Covid-19. 


The aim of the research is to understand more about the wellbeing needs of medical students as a group and design more effective services to meet these needs.

The study will assess the levels of wellbeing and help-seeking behaviour of first, second and third year medical students. This research will benefit students who experience low levels of wellbeing during their studies by helping to build better university and clinical services that are more effective and relevant to students in the Medicine Program.


To take part in the research study, you must be:

  • 18 years of age or older; and either
  • a first year medical student or
  • a second year medical student or
  • a third year medical student?

What would happen if I took part in the research study?

If you decide to take part, you will need to complete an anonymous and confidential online survey that should only take 15 minutes to complete.

Will I be paid to take part?

As compensation for the time spent completing the survey, participants will be given the opportunity to enter a lucky prize draw for one of 20 x $100 Coles Myer gift cards.
