The Youth Friendly Doctor program is designed to provide medical professionals with the skills and knowledge to remain up to date with the most pertinent issues affecting young people and how to best manage these issues.


The program is developed and delivered by health professionals with specific skills in the area of youth health, providing the most current information.
