Resident and Faculty Wellness Program

OHSU Tram Sunrise

The Resident and Faculty Wellness Program provides an array of services to increase clinician wellness and reduce burnout and distress, facilitating a strong and thriving workforce. Many medical professionals experience stress under the unique demands of working in an academic medical environment, 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 to talk or consult with us.

Do you have questions about seeking health care in our program? Please email:

How stressed are you? How would you score on depression and anxiety screening questions? Are you struggling with maintaining good health habits?

Residents, fellows, and primary School of Medicine and School of Dentistry faculty can receive free, confidential professional services, currently via telehealth. Experienced psychologists and psychiatrists provide health care with no EPIC documentation. Over the past 18 years, thousands of OHSU physicians have participated in this program and our team currently provides over 250 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.

Why do we do this?

With thanks to Jared Rubenstein, M.D., and Jessi Gold, M.D.

Confidentiality is our highest priority. We do not document in Epic. Participation in the Wellness Program is confidential and no information is shared without written consent unless the individual is a danger to self or others, or is impaired.
