The MPS guide for medical students

The Medical Council, which is responsible for registering and regulating doctors, takes honesty, integrity and appropriate behaviour very seriously. Combined with the reputed ‘work hard, play hard’ culture of life as a medic, and the tough academic pressures of the course, it’s perhaps not surprising that MPS hears from many students who are worried they may have got into difficulties.

In this booklet, we look at the main areas where mistakes can be made, and how to avoid things going wrong.

The handbook covers key areas including:

  1. Good medical practice
  2. Personal conduct
  3. Social media
  4. You and colleagues
  5. You and your patients
  6. Your work
  7. Your health.
