Doctors’ Health SA was established to provide doctors and medical students with a GP of their own, and to encourage doctors and medical students to engage with non-medical extracurricular activities. As a fully independent and profession-controlled organisation, Doctors’ Health SA is dedicated to improving the health of South Australian doctors and medical students, for the benefit of both individual professionals and the communities they serve.

Achieving a good work-life balance is not just a cliché or myth. Finding interests outside the work environment can positively contribute to personal health and well-being.
