Employees

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP)  is available to all benefit-eligible employees and their dependents, regardless of medical plan enrollment. The EAP provides you and eligible members of your household 24/7 access to confidential counseling (as well as other services); the most commonly used benefit of the EAP is three free visits (no copay or other out of pocket cost to you) with a counselor for you and/or your dependents. Many issues can be addressed directly with your EAP professional; in some cases, you may be referred to other resources that are in your network coverage.

The Resident and Faculty Wellness Program (RFWP) provides an array of services for residents, fellows, and primary School of Medicine faculty, through which they can receive free, confidential counseling and coaching services at our OHSU Marquam Hill campus. You do not need to be in crisis; you may just want to talk or consult with us. 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. They are here to help you address any problems or concerns, personal or professional.
