Medical practitioners in Victoria are once again among those at the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic. As I write, there is continued uncertainty facing doctors across Australia about what lies ahead. In Victoria at least, a second chapter of lockdown, on top of related clinical demands, will demand a lot of healthcare teams. I encourage all doctors to take care of their health and wellbeing, and to seek support if this would be helpful. The services and resources of Drs4Drs are there for you.
Also in August, the Medical Training Survey will open. I encourage all doctors in training to take part and help shape the future of medical training in Australia.
