Did you know doctors and medical students can access independent, confidential, doctors’ health advisory services in all states/territories?

  • New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory (02) 9437 6552

While the Medical Board of Australia provides funding for these services, they operate at arm’s length from the MBA with the AMA’s subsidiary company, Doctors Health Services Pty Ltd responsible for the coordination of these services.
