Navigating intern, resident, and registrar-specific challenges with confidence

As junior doctors, we understand that certain challenges are likely to arise as you navigate your early career. At MDA National, we want to ensure that our junior doctor Members feel confident and supported throughout this period. That's why we're thrilled to introduce our new webinar series, "Empowering Junior Doctors."

Whether you're facing bullying and micro-aggressions as an intern, struggling to maintain a healthy work-life balance as a resident, or juggling exam preparation and the supervision of junior staff as a registrar, this series will equip you with the skills and information you need, so you can keep on progressing through your early career with confidence.

Led by Dr. Amy Imms from The Burnout Project, this webinar series is scheduled to begin in August 2023. Stay tuned for updates and early registration information.

Meet our Presenter

Dr. Amy Imms is a medical doctor helping people recover from burnout and create a life of meaningful work and joy, and is author of 'Burnout: your first ten steps'. She believes that we can thrive instead of merely surviving with evidence-based burnout-specific support. She provides group support, individual counselling, online courses, retreats, workshops, and hosts Thrive Symposium. Amy is passionate about preventing burnout in the workplace and supports organisations through workshops, training, and consulting. She wants you to know that if you're feeling burnt-out, you're not alone, not a failure, and recovery is possible.

What attendees said

“The session provided a great prompt for self-reflection as well as some really practical strategies.”

“It was great to take time out think about myself and how I'm coping with work and stress right now, as well as to identify small steps I can actually take to improve it.”

“Contemplating these things was very useful, as well as hearing others share their experiences in the discussion. The content was well-organised , and provided good ideas for how to break the daily cycle of work blending into life.”

“As someone who has experienced burnout, Amy's workshop touched on a lot of important issues that I could relate to, had good prompts for self-reflection, highlighted burnout causes I hadn't considered, and provided advice on what to do."
