OUR ONLINE RESOURCES

Our website is home to a host of awesome online resources. These include webinars of our inspiring speakers from past events, member profiles and our blog, curated by co-founder Dr Anna Dunn, with contributions from a range of impressive guest writers. We have a collection of recommended readings, podcasts, and innovative business resources to help you find specialists to refer to, or expand your own referral base.

MAKE ME A MENTOR/MENTEE

The right mentoring relationship can quite frankly be not only career-changing but life-changing. AND, the benefits of a good mentoring relationship are bi-directional. Our Mentoring program is supported by a cloud-based platform which takes the awkwardness out of any mentor/mentee relationship and ensures the right match and fit to allow the magic of mentoring to unfold!

DOC TO DOC EVENTS

Grow your network, hear from inspiring speakers and develop your leadership and management skills in this quarterly meet up, held at some of the most interesting venues around Australia. Catch up with your friends and colleagues, expand your horizons and get excited by the possibilities that exist when a bunch of talented, like-minded, dynamic women get together to share ideas and make connections.

Can I speak to the Doctor?

Can I speak to the Doctor? is the Doc to Doc podcast. Hosted by founders Anna, Nags & Mel, the series dives right into the gritty topics that we often avoid. Come along for the ride as we hear from inspiring people in the medical and non-medical community. We also hear about the highs and lows of life as a doctor from some of our Doc to Doc members. We open the lid on mental health issues, death, relationships, motherhood and the mystical ‘work-life balance’. Some of these stories will be inspiring, some will be gut-wrenching and all will be relatable.

THE GLOBAL WOMEN’S PROJECT

We believe in social responsibility and we believe in the power of women. We have partnered with the Global Women’s Project to support their work with remarkable grassroots women’s organisations to improve the lives of women in some of the most disadvantaged communities in the world. They do this by investing in women’s education, livelihoods and leadership. This partnership has the potential to really make a change in the developing world. Find out more about how you can get involved!

BUILD MY PRIVATE PRACTICE

Showcase your private business on our online directory and improve your profile. Help your colleagues to find you and refer patients through this ‘online marketplace’. Search by location or specialty and contact each other through the online messenger to answer questions like “what tests would you like me to order before the patient sees you?” Use it as a starting point to help people find you, and for you in turn to refer your patients to someone you feel confident in.

THE JOBS AND RESUME BOARD

Whether you’re looking for locum work, looking for someone to cover your leave, or even wanting to find a buddy to job share with – this is the place for you! Post jobs as an employer and showcase the benefits of working in your practice, or search for suitable jobs and new opportunities if you’re in the market for a career transition. Make the journey to your new role as easy and relaxed as possible

Commonly asked questions

Why should I join this movement?

Are you female? Do you work in Medicine?

Have you been challenged by gender issues in the workplace or confronted by a negative workplace culture, or bullying?

Have you faced the challenges of working whilst getting married, having children, breastfeeding or raising children?

Have you been judged because you’re a single female with no children or family?

Have you encountered barriers within your training program due to gender issues?

Do you want to feel empowered knowing that there is a whole community of women who have gone through similar issues and will provide you with a wealth of support?

Then join my ladies, this is the place for you and together we will create change!

I am a medical student. Will this be a useful resource for me?

Definately! This group was created to enable trainees at any level to feel supported, inspired, and empowered to become future leaders. You will get access to mentors and networking opportunities with women who will help support you in your future career and possibly give you a job one day!

How often will you have the professional development & networking events?

As doctors ourselves, we know how precious time is.  We understand the challenge of wanting to dedicate time to work as well as our families/friends, and even (if we’re lucky!) ourselves. We also know how important and enjoyable it is to network with our colleagues and share experiences.

We recognize that it is vital for our success and sanity to have strong support from our peers, and foster invaluable mentoring relationships.

We are planning to meet at least 4 times per year in a relaxed environment at stunning, hand-selected venues across Australia.  You will experience world class inspirational speakers, engage with colleagues and friends, and expand your professional networks.  All this whilst sipping champagne and discussing how to change the world!

Will events and other exclusive content be discounted for members?

Yes! Doc to Doc Network members will receive a 50% discount for events and other exclusive content or products. One free event is also included with each yearly membership.

How can I become a mentor/mentee?

Check out our Mentoring page which has some great information about the benefits of mentoring and how to choose the ideal mentor/mentee.

The mentoring program is supported by a unique cloud-based platform (Mentorloop) which was developed right here in Melbourne by 2 badass female founders.  It enables mentors and mentees to be matched based on a list of skills, interests and desired outcomes.

We want to ensure we match suitable mentors and mentees to create meaningful, life-changing mentoring relationships so we need lots of willing and engaged participants!

Once we reach our target number of members signed up we will be able to launch the program. Register your interest with us by completing the online form.

What are your refund policies?

Unfortunately, we cannot provide refunds.

For monthly memberships there is a three (3) month minimum term. After that you can cancel at any time.

For yearly subscriptions, no refunds will be available but we’re confident that you are going to love being a part of this dynamic community of inspiring women!
