Junior Doctor's Corner is a podcast created by a resident medical officer who was surprised at how lacking the support can be for junior doctors in the work environment.

This podcast aims to help medical students and junior doctors not only survive, but thrive in their careers. It covers topics and conversations that doctors seldom broach but wish they had. Junior Doctor's Corner hopes to provide some support, encouragement, and inspiration to fellow junior doctors who need it.
