it sounds fine and an interesting one but if you want to apply to a more academic medicine course i recommend something science orientated such as gene editing or immunotherapy

Would you consider Manchester as more academic, or do you mean unis such as UCL or Imperial?

Very specialist topic and I personally wouldn't recommend it.

It is so recent that I think you would struggle finding enough sources.

Agreed, and it is still ongoing.

Many junior doctors in our hospitals' medical directorate have been informed that they may well be redeployed this winter.

I have found about 12-15 articles/studies about it on various websites, one was by doctors titled The impact of COVID-19 on training opportunities and

long-term career aspirations of UK based doctors, but I'm quite nervous.

You would easily find much, much more on medical topics e.g. things like Alzheimer's disease / Parkinson's Disease (I'm a neurologist so I'm biased).

That's good but I think you just need to be clear on the reliability and credibility of the websites. Also, it is perhaps good to have more than just websites.

I would be tempted to do something else, if it were me, with more source material.

Thanks everyone! I have some more questions, which of these do you think is the best?

- What are the racial and ethnic disparities across healthcare?
- What's the relationship between physical health + mental health?
- How significant is the placebo effect?
-What are the bio-psychological predictors of post-partum depression?
- Do care home environments worsen affects of Dementia + Alzeihmers?
- Are anti depressants a quick fix problem in an overwhelmed healthcare system?
- Why is the south asian population more susceptible to type 2 diabetes

Some of your questions are really broad (e.g. the first one) while others are quite specific (the fourth one).

It depends on what interests you?

In their current form the first and second appear too broad to me. With the third, me personally...I would change the word 'significant' to something more specific maybe.

I don't know enough about the other topics to say much that is helpful, I am afraid. There may not be much room for analysis with the fourth? It sounds like it would be easy to fall into the trap of mainly describing - but I don't know enough about the topic to say....
(in fact I know nothing!)

Don't forget to put all the thought processes and ideas about different titles in your log btw..... :smartass:

A lot of these (e.g. the first 3) are very broad, but you could narrow down your area of interest during the literature review and amend your title as you go.
