Monash Doctors Intern Mentoring Program

To help navigate the exciting, yet at times confronting, transition from medical student to junior doctor is the Monash Doctors Intern Mentoring Program. Our intern mentors are volunteers from the senior medical staff at Monash Health. They take a special interest in the professional development of a junior doctor and provide guidance & support.

Some things a mentor can help with includes:

  • Career development & satisfaction
  • Workload & work/life balance
  • Personal/family issues
  • Professionalism
  • Staff interactions or conflict resolution
  • Communication issues
  • Clinical issues

Confidentiality is critical for the success of the mentoring program. The mentors take this responsibility seriously and will not share specific details of these discussions with anyone else without permission except in exceptional circumstances.
