Resident & Fellow Wellness Program
If your need is urgent, please call 503 330-7880
Many residents and fellows struggle to manage the unique demands of advanced medical training. Sometimes, we can be resilient in the face of severe stress, but at other times we can become overwhelmed and may need professional help to be more resilient.
Residents and fellows can receive free, confidential counseling and coaching services on site here at OHSU. We are here to help you address any problems or concerns that may or may not be related to training. You do not need to be in crisis, you may just want to talk.
- Brief evaluation and consultation
- Individual coaching and counseling
- Couples counseling (Limit of 3 meetings)
- Psychiatric medical consultation and medication management
- Referrals to community resources for counseling, psychiatric services or primary care
- Educational workshops
Eligibility and Confidentiality
All resident and fellows are eligible for free wellness coaching and counseling services. There is often concern about confidentiality and privacy. Everyone who participates in the Resident Wellness Program is seen in a private location at OHSU. No Epic medical record is created and no insurance is billed. No information is shared with your programs without your consent unless there is a risk of danger to self or others. You do not have to report meeting with a wellness coach or counselor when you apply for, or renew your medical license: counseling is not reportable.
