As an organisation, Whole Hearted Medicine is committed to rigorous educational standards and innovative models for delivering transformative medical education. We are one of the few organisations who hold CPD accreditation across multiple speciality colleges and have done since our first retreat in 2021. We are committed to our goal of ensuring that wellbeing education is embedded into not only medical school curriculums but also recognised in the ongoing CPD requirements for all doctors.

Our educational events focus heavily on the autonomy of each doctor who attends. Supported self reflection, group reflection and sharing act to assist all doctors who attend to build an integrated knowledge base of concepts around workplace stress management & self awareness as well as developing their own robust plan for self care and wellbeing. With an educational program that promotes development of self-efficacy and effective coping skills by encouraging peer support, resilience, and optimism, while normalising appropriate help-seeking behaviour when needed our events strongly encourage the skill of
 reflective practice that is heavily embedded in the AHPRA CPD standards.  
The cornerstone of our educational model encompasses our core pillars of SELF CARE, SELF AWARENESS and SELF COMPASSION into a balanced concept of the ‘Whole Hearted Doctor’.

The Whole Hearted Doctor is one who:
  • Is mindful of their internal environment and responses.
  • Knows, respects and has compassion for their sense of self.
  • Is able to build and maintain appropriate and compassionate boundaries for themselves and others.
  • Is able to practice self compassion as they move through stages of growth and learning.
  • Having mastered all these skills and committed their ongoing practice, is able to extend this knowledge to those around them including colleagues, juniors and students.
