The Resident and Faculty Wellness Program's (RFWP's) seeks to provide an array of services to increase clinician wellness and reduce burnout and distress, thereby facilitating a strong and thriving workforce. Many medical professionals experience stress under the unique demands of working in an academic medical environment. Sometimes, we can be resilient in the face of severe stress, but at other times we can become overwhelmed and may benefit from additional support. We are here to help you address any problems or concerns, personal or professional. You do not need to be in crisis, you may just want to talk or consult with us.

Residents, fellows, and primary School of Medicine faculty can receive free, confidential counseling and coaching services at our OHSU Marquam Hill campus. Experienced psychologists and psychiatrists provide professional services in a private location with no EPIC documentation. Over the past 10 years, hundreds of OHSU physicians have participated in this program and our team currently provides over 100 visits every month. Our clinical focus is on intervening early, supporting distressed physicians and finding the necessary resources to build sustainable medical practices and rewarding personal lives.

We have a tremendous emphasis on confidentiality. We do not document in EPIC. Visits are confidential with the only exceptions being if the individual is a danger to oneself or others, or impaired.
