At the 3rd and 4th National Forums on Prevocational Medical Education, held in 1998 and 1999, it was realised that the issues surrounding students and junior doctors who are distressed warranted further attention. As a consequence, this Conference, The student and junior doctor in distress — "our duty of care", was arranged with the aim of formulating recommendations to educational bodies, health departments and medical boards.
