Suffering at work among medical students Qualitative study using semi-structured interviews [Souffrance au travail des étudiants en médecine étude qualitative par entretiens semi-dirigés]

Abstract : Introduction - Suffering at work among health professionals is a hot topic. Medical students, doctors of tomorrow, are far from being spared. Prevalence of anxiety and mood disorders range from 20.3 to 69 % for the former and from 12 to 30 % for the latter. The purpose of this article is to determine these factors by qualitative research, according to medical students' points of view. Methods - It is a qualitative study using semistructured interviews. The analysis is done according to the Grounded Theory. Results - 12 medical students are interviewed. They expressed difficulties at work and positive factors. Three major themes are identified in selective coding: occupational factors, " study " factors and individual factors. All themes are both a source of well-being and ill-being according to the situations specified in the results. Conclusion - Studying medicine includes positive and negative aspects. Abandonment issues, lack of recognition and insufficient coaching emerge from our study. Screening of suffering at work should be systematic for medical students.
