Thesis proposal for EDISS 2023 candidate

RESHAPE is looking for a candidate to be prepared and presented to the EDISS doctoral school competition 

PROMESS Project : Preventive Remediation for Optimal MEdical StudentS 

Description of the subject
The PROMESS project aims to help medical students manage the anxiety generated by their studies. Early knowledge of stress remediation tools would allow students to quickly acquire the necessary tools for their student activities and their professional lives as future physicians. All 3rd year medical students at the Claude Bernard Lyon 1 University will have the opportunity to follow a preventive and personalized remediation program based on 3 fun modules: stress management, sleep improvement and physical activity. This program will be spread over 3 months and will include a period of awareness, self-diagnosis and then tooling up. This training will be co-constructed with the students beforehand (participatory research) and then delivered by experts to all students who wish to voluntarily engage in the study. It is expected that the modules will lead to spontaneous and autonomous practice of remediation tools. Pre- and post-intervention phases will allow for a detailed evaluation of the impact of the interventions on the academic performance of the students and on their quality of life. A multi-year follow-up of the dropout and burnout rates will also be implemented. The evaluation of the effectiveness of the intervention will be based on a multidisciplinary approach, both qualitative and quantitative. The project will be carried out in collaboration with researchers and physicians in public health and psychiatry.
