Physician Wellness Program


TAKE CARE OF YOUR PATIENTS BY TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF


The Physician Wellness Program (PWP) provides a safe harbor for physicians to address normal life difficulties in a confidential and professional environment.


WHY WAS THIS PROGRAM CREATED?


A physician’s life can be difficult. Problems with the current health care delivery system, maintaining a healthy work/life/family balance, and dealing with the normal stresses of everyday life do take their toll on physicians.


Often our patients turn to us for counseling and guidance, but who can we turn to when we need to talk through an issue or get some coaching for how to handle the stresses in our lives? Too often the answer is “no one,” and that is regrettable because it is important that we be as healthy as possible in our role as health care providers.


It is important that we function at our best in all areas of our life. By addressing areas of difficulty, we can decrease our stress levels and increase our level of resilience and effectiveness.

Some examples of those difficulties include:

  • Family Issues Relationship problems
  • Work-related difficulties
  • Depression & anxiety
  • Burnout
  • Difficulty managing stress
  • Mood swings
  • Suicidal thoughts

HOW PWP WORKS


We have focused our program with two independent psychology groups. These groups provide counseling to active physician members of the Lee County Medical Society (LCMS), up to eight visits per calendar year. Non-urgent sessions can be scheduled during regular business hours.


Our providers maintain a confidential file for each physician. No insurance will be billed and LCMS will not be given any information about those who utilize the pro-gram. As such, this program is completely confidential. LCMS will pay a monthly bill based on the number of sessions provided. LCMS membership will be verified with the physician finder on the LCMS website.

PWP Benefits

  • This program is a LCMS membership benefit. 8 free sessions each calendar year.  
  • Complete confidentiality; LCMS staff will have no access to records or names of clients.
