Please join our new virtual peer support group for medical students and residents who identify as neurodivergent (no formal diagnosis required). 

Group peer support brings together people who share a lived or living experience and provides a confidential, supportive space where peers can listen without judgment, share insights, and provide hope and encouragement to one another. 

The goals of the group are to:

  • increase community and connection
  • lessen distress
  • identify and leverage strengths from participant’s lived and living experiences

Schedule: Weekly meeting on Wednesdays from 12:00 — 12:45 pm starting May 82024

If you would like more information or have questions about this group, please email the physician facilitator, Dr. Alexander Dibrov.
