A pilot support group for interns was established at Boston City Hospital early in the internship year to deal with the personal and professional issues arising out of the stresses of the internship. This report describes the functioning of this group, including a statement of goals, content of weekly meetings, and evaluation by group members. In general, the interns felt that the experience was positive and especially valuable in terms of providing support for personal/professional role conflict.
