OHSU

Faculty Wellness

If you feel your need is urgent:
please call (503) 330-7880

  • Are you feeling disconnected from your friends and family?
  • Are you worried that your academic career is not on track?
  • Are work demands beginning to impact your health?
  • Are you becoming more negative and irritable or angry?
  • Are you feeling overwhelmed?

If you answered "yes" to any of  these questions, you are not alone.  Many faculty struggle to find a balance between work and their personal lives.  Early and mid-career physicians and other health professionals are especially vulnerable to the intense demands of academic medicine.  Financial stressors and productivity pressures can be demoralizing and emotionally exhausting.  Even senior faculty can find transitions in career and personal life more challenging than anticipated.


Why Wait for a Crisis?

Sometimes we can bounce back from severe stress.  But, we can also become immobilized. A coach or counselor can help us build more resilience. 

We are here to help you address any problems or concerns.  You do not need to be in crisis. You may have a question or simply want to talk with us.
