14: Feeling terrified

Suzi is joined by Dr Paula Byrne, the lead for PSM on the medical degree at the University of Liverpool. In this episode they discuss the concept of ‘feeling terrified’, in part inspired by an email we received from a student who is nervous about going back in to hospitals in September. In the episode Paula discusses why feeling terrified can be a normal response, and how to manage those feelings.
