Peer Support Program is a dedicated resource to support junior medical staff with health and wellbeing matters. The program is delivered by trained junior medical staff who have volunteered to provide an empathic ear to peers who may be struggling with personal, training, work, health or other life problems. Junior medical staff experiencing any of these issues are encouraged to directly contact a Peer Supporter for a confidential discussion and assistance in finding the right resources to address the issue. Peer Supporters have received formalised training and are supported by Coaches, who are senior doctors and nursing staff.
