With growing instances of violence at medical facilities and immense study pressure, resident doctors are more prone to depression and anxiety issues. Some doctors get so dejected that they start getting second thoughts and decide to change this noble profession.

Speaking to Medical Dialogues, Dr Sumedh Sandanshiv, who is one of the organizers of the event said, “The instances of resident doctors suffering from depression are growing day by day. We desperately need a programme to tackle this matter. We are working 24*7 to improve working environments at health institutions. In addition, we have also come up with an online survey of resident doctors, “Workplace Violence Against Healthcare Professionals”, so as to analyze the factors which prompt violence at a medical facility and also how to prevent it.”
