This study aimed to form a robust evidence base to inform the development and implementation of interventions to support the wellbeing of and promote resilience within doctors in Scotland. To achieve this, we needed to understand how doctors across the career continuum experienced transitions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and how this affected their wellbeing in multiple domains. The Scottish Medical Education Research Consortium (SMERC) is uniquely placed to undertake this study as it is a collaboration of all five Scottish medical schools and NHS Education for Scotland (NES).
