Welcome to Victorian Doctors'
Health Program

The Victorian Doctors Health Program is a free confidential advisory service for all Victorian doctors and medical students who have concerns about their well-being: such as stress, mental health questions, substance use struggles, or physical health issues. 

Our services include providing collegial support, and the promotion of doctors and medical students health across Victoria.

We are  dedicated to improving the health and well being of those within the medical profession. 

Dr Patrick Johnson, Medical Director

What we do

VDHP provides assistance to doctors and medical students who have any of the following concerns:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Substance use problems
  • Mental or physical health concerns
  • Any other health issue

Advice is also provided to anyone who is concerned about a doctor or medical student. This includes family, friends, colleagues, university staff and clinical staff.

VDHP is a free advisory and collegial support service for doctors and medical students.  We can provide a opportunity for thinking through your situation without pressure, judgement  or bureaucracy.  Whilst the VDHP is not a clinical service we can assist in organising appropriate follow-up care.  

Your Confidentiality is of utmost priority to us and inquiries can be made anonymously.  However, like all health practitioners, we are required to remain in compliance with the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009.
