Our Role

We are GP’s, specialists and registrars working in hospitals, private practice and in administration. We provide networking, events and student mentoring opportunities.

The Work We Do

Firstly we are a networking group.  The members have different needs, such as women newly arrived in the region wanting to meet other women with similar interests and make to make friends.  There is a Medical Women’s Playgroup which meets at irregular intervals at Black Mountain Peninsula.  We are GP’s, specialists and registrars working in hospitals, private practice and in administration.

We meet five times a year at various venues, with different themes. One of our gatherings is a designated fundraising dinner, where we specifically aim to raise money for a charity related to women’s and children’s health.   Our current charities are The Fijian Village Project, an initiative of local Medical Students and an orphanage in Zimbabwe.

We have a role in student support and mentoring, where students can access local members having a range of  experience from General Practice to Obstetrics to Orthopedics.  A focus will be life-work balance with and without families.
