Dr Fiona Moir

Senior Lecturer

Fiona trained in the UK at Sheffield University and went on to work as a GP in the UK and New Zealand. She now works in a part-time role in the Medical Programme Directorate and in The Department of General Practice at The University of Auckland as a Senior Lecturer. Within this job, she has developed SAFE-DRS, a Health and Wellbeing curriculum for medical students, and has created comprehensive pastoral care policies and care pathways for the medical school.

In 2016, she was appointed as a Director of Medical Student Affairs. Outside of the University, she is also a Director of two companies: Connect Communications, a medical education business which designs and facilitates self-care, supervision and communication skills sessions for health professionals, and First Response, a company specialising in peer-interventions for identifying and responding to distress in the workplace.

In 2008, she was one of the co-authors of the CALM website, a resource for stress management and happiness, which was originally made available to students and then later released to the public. Her interests are: early interventions for stress, anxiety and depression; self-care; the health of health professionals; healthy workplaces and communication. Her PhD is in the area of peer-led interventions to improve mental health.
