Summary

Participants will be required to complete one set of online survey instruments, consisting of four unique surveys, at eight critical points throughout their graduate program. Early in the study, participants will also be asked to complete a one-time Participant Demographics form. The four surveys include the Brief Symptom inventory 18(BSI 18), the Financial Anxiety Scale, a multidimensional scale of perceived stress, as well as the Jefferson Empathy Scale. The financial anxiety scale and the perceived stress scale will each take less than five minutes to complete. Both the financial anxiety scale and the perceived stress scale will be administered through CMU's REDCap system (Research Electronic Data Capture) managed by the IT division of Central Michigan University. The BSI 18 will take approximately 3 to 5 minutes to complete and will be administered through the manufacturer called Pearson using Q-global. The final survey is the Jefferson empathy scale that will be administered through a link generated by Jefferson Medical School. Participants will receive a separate electronic email invitation from Q-global to complete the BSI18. Administration of the four online surveys will take place at the endpoint of the first semester and at the midpoint of each consecutive semester until the sixth semester, along with two additional administrations at the end of semesters four and six.
