The education of medical students and trainees increasingly involves technology. Learners expect to use technology as part of their studies;1 yet teachers can struggle with this change in learning behaviour. Although digital resources can improve learning, we have insufficient understanding of learners’ experiences2 or choices about using them to supplement or replace traditional teaching methods. Our research aimed to explore medical students’ decisions about using digital resources in order to better tailor our educational approaches.
