Recalibrate: Doctor Care

Immersive Development Program for Doctors

Our Recalibrate Program includes 1:1 coaching and a closed group support network of doctors working alongside each other over several months and beyond (online masterclasses), to build and support personal insight that can be shared in the service of wellbeing and healthcare leadership.

We focus on self-awareness, emotional intelligence, mindfulness, unconscious bias, leadership skills, and effective communication, including giving and receiving feedback. Having a strong accessible, support community is a protective factor for great mental health and can improve performance.

Be the best doctor you can be.
Choose thriving, put an end to the days of “surviving” medicine.

Recalibrate offers you the chance to develop your capacity as a mindful, compassionate health professional, who experiences great wellbeing, is well resourced, able to lead and communicate effectively, and who is supported for those times when wellbeing is challenged.

Soft skills are not easy, but they can be learned. Improving these skills can improve your experience at work and in life, improve your relationships with colleagues, patients, and your family. This means everyone can feel more trust and psychological safety. The results include better safety for patients and for doctors, better health outcomes, and less burnout.

100% of Recalibrate Graduates say YES when we ask them:
Would you recommend Recalibrate to other doctors?

Restore Joy & Balance

It’s a safe group of clinicians facilitated by a fellow clinician and experienced psychologist, where you can discuss the non-clinical aspects of medicine which helped me on the way to restoring joy and balance in my work.
Public Health Doctor

A great course

A great course to help reduce burnout and maintain enjoyment in our working lives. I learnt a lot about how to look after myself so I can continue to care for others.

Invaluable opportunity

Invaluable opportunity to focus on own longevity in medicine through exploring mindfulness, concepts around resilience and burnout that are practical and positive in a time when self-care has sometimes been tokenistically suggested.

Eye opening experience

An eye opening experience encouraging reflection on self and learning from others, whilst clinical experience is very varied, often there is a lot of shared emotional experience or common uncertainties/difficulties.

Allows self discovery

A program that allows for self discovery and support to challenges in managing a long term career in medicine

Time to learn, reflect

Recalibrate is a good way to intentionally set aside time to learn, reflect on and discuss what is important and difficult about being a doctor, and how to improve one’s skills in a safe, small group environment.
