Description:
Leading up to the industrial action, medical schools from across the country collected over 2500 signature in a petition showing support to the junior doctors and advocating for better working conditions 2 . Medical students are concerned about the working conditions that they will be facing in the near future and troubled by the depiction of the lifestyle of a junior doctor by McGowan 3 , where junior doctors feel undervalued and unappreciated on a daily basis. On the eve of the planned industrial action, the vast majority of medical students had received no official statement. This resulted in many invigorated students coming up with a vast variety of opinions on how students should conduct themselves throughout the strike. Some were promoting non-attendance and others thought they should do nothing differently on the day. Some students even thought it was appropriate to join the picket line themselves, which was quickly corrected.
