Physician Health and Well-being

The SMA supports physician health and well-being through a range of programs and services. Confidential referral, intervention and on-going supports are available to physicians and their families. Consultation and advice are also available to physicians handling difficult interpersonal issues.

Physician Health Program

The Physician Health Program provides assistance to colleagues, physicians in training and their families who may be struggling with a variety of issues. Support is available to physicians throughout the spectrum of their careers - from medical school to residency, through active practice and into retirement. Referral sources and those accessing service can be reassured that all information remains strictly confidential.

Physicians who offer support through this program come from a variety of backgrounds and expertise, the common denominator being a dedication to the provision of non-judgmental and confidential assistance and support.
