Severe depression and fitness to practice watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    Ive been struggling with my mental health for many years, but never sought out help because I felt as though if I was to receive an official diagnosis, it would put me at a disadvantage when I had to declare it for jobs in the future.

    Im currently a first year university student and Im really looking into applying for graduate entry medicine after my degree, and I know you have to complete fitness to practice checks etc when you enrol on a medical course, I was just wondering that if i was ever diagnosed with a mental health disorder or even admitted to hospital in regards to something related to my mental health, would this affect my ability to enrol on a medical course in any way?


    It wont affect your ability to get in to grad med
