What’s it all about?
The Doc to Doc Network started as a Facebook group. It is a private group for female doctors to connect, share experiences and get support. Online communities are so powerful because they allow us to overcome the barriers of hierarchy, geography and brings together people from different specialties who all have different perspectives and experiences to contribute. This group harness all that power and solidarity and is the first step towards creating meaningful change in Medicine.
Post a question or a comment, a link to an article or a photo or just check in and see what topics are hot right now with your female colleagues. Share difficult experiences within an understanding group environment and get support – a problem shared is a problem halved!
Connect & Collaborate
This group is an opportunity for you to virtually ‘rub shoulders’ with colleagues of all specialties and levels right across Australia. Connect and discuss job opportunities, get career advice, collaborate, job share – the potential is endless.
Educate & Inspire
Be inspired by the amazing women all around us. Some have excelled in research, some in clinical practice or setting up a business, some in juggling family and career. Sharing and connecting shows us just what is possible, even against the odds.
