Background: This study explores the factors influencing students to seek medical help, and student perceptions in relation to student–doctor interactions with implications for health help-seeking behaviours.
Method: Students were interviewed across year groups. The interviews were audiotaped, transcribed and qualitatively analysed.
Results: We interviewed 22 students and identified common themes.
Conclusion: Medical students reflect on issues related to seeking medical help, their choice of GP and the decision whether to divulge they are medical students.
