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.

Since the commencement of VDHP, we have assisted doctors and medical students presenting with numerous issues ranging from those having a mild impact on quality of life to those threatening careers and lives.  VDHP deals with each individual case on its merits and offers a range of interventions.

VDHP develops individual management plans and co-ordinates treatment, including arranging appropriate referrals to external treatment providers. We conduct our service with the utmost discretion. Confidentiality is of utmost priority to VDHP.  However, like all health practitioners, we are required to remain in compliance with the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law Act 2009.
