MD-led Virtual Chats, Sponsored by the OMA

Join Zoom Meeting Daily from 12:00-1:00 pm

Meeting ID: 595 378 840, Password: 067104

The Physician Health Program invites you to drop in virtually between noon and 1:00 pm each weekday to support one another during the COVID-19 pandemic. The sessions will be led by Dr. Kasra Khorasani, a psychiatrist at Mount Sinai Health Systems and St. Joseph’s Health Centre in Toronto, who is an expert in group therapy. This is not psychotherapy.

Stay for one minute or as long as you can, and come back as many times as you like. Everyone is welcome. The chats are meant to be a safe space where we can talk about how we are managing.

Peer-to-Peer Discussion Forum

The MD Program, in partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), has created a Discussion Forum for U of T MD students to obtain support around stress and anxiety related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This online peer-to-peer discussion forum is a space where you can receive support, encouragement, and share your experiences with managing your stress and anxiety related to COVID-19. Contact us for details on how to access this group.

Wellness Ambassadors

The SHINE team has student Wellness Ambassadors who provide resource support to medical students.

On-Line Interpersonal Group for MDs

Wednesdays 3:00-4:45 pm starting June 3rd, 2020

Interested MDs can contact
Kasra Khorasani MD. FRCPC
416 627 4590 

At times of crisis such as now, we find ourselves having more interpersonal conflicts with our bosses, colleagues, patients, family members and partners. As stressful and unpleasant some of those conflicts are, we now have a possibility of examining, learning and changing some of our interpersonal patterns so to have more adaptive and fulfilling relationships.

On-Line Interpersonal Group for MDs creates a supportive cohesive reflective space where such changes can come about. This will be a closed twenty sessions weekly On-Line HIPAA compliant (private and secure) Zoom group covered by OHIP. The participants will be MDs working in Ontario. The participants have the option of continuing with the subsequent 20 session groups.
