We are “docs”, MDs, dentists, veterinarians and pharmacists from all over the world who present themselves or are presented by others with their EXTRA-medical activities – from amateur to fully professional, since many docs have two professions or even more. We leave out most medical things whatever career the docs have made in the medical field.

Health care professionals are in a higher risk (2,5 to 4 times higher) for depressions, suicidal crisis and burn-out-syndrome than normal population. This is why the scope of this portal as one facette of the institution is to bring us to a better work-life-balance each other by exchanging our experiences in our extra-medical activities.

This internet portal was called before and was the greates collection until a server crash destroyed the modern website. Everybody is cordially invited to register requesting a LogIn access by email to Wolfgang @ and post their own stories as well as stories from other docs.
