This is a blog for medical students and graduates with a creative streak.We've found quite a few talented people in the years we've been running events for Creative Doctors. The world may have been a richer place if they had all decided not to study medicine!
Who are we?We are Marg Gottleib, Howard Gwynne and Jan Orman. We are all Sydney GPs with an interest in mental health. We try to be creative ourselves but we also try to support the creativity of our colleagues by providing space for them to share the fruits of their creative labour.
Why do we do it?We are convinced that creativity is good for your mental health and that doctors with good mental health are good for their patients.
We have three functions a year - one for writers, one for visual artists and one for performers.
Judith Babich of Active Locums sponsors these functions and all are welcome to attend to see and hear what these talented practitioners do in their free time.
