Young physicians to be surveyed in 2021

Future doctors are an important user group of telemedical services on the market.

Therefore, it seems essential to understand the level of acceptance as well as possible reasons for skepticism towards digital health services among future doctors in order to draw up recommendations by means of an inter- and transdisciplinary discussion. These recommendations shall lead to the best possible implementation of digitally supported medical care in the future.

The survey seeks to find out about the attitudes medical students have regarding telemedical care and how they envision their future profession. It will be conducted in cooperation with the public Austrian medical universities and is intended to be repeated at regular intervals in order to track developments on a data basis.

Danube University Krems and the public medical universities of Graz, Innsbruck, Vienna and Linz will jointly carry out this interdisciplinary project, which the Research Lab Society in Transition of Danube University Krems initiated and coordinated within the framework of the research focus "Health and Society".
