Anonymous Counseling for ACMS Member Physicians

Program Flyer

Click for Program Flyer

The Board of Directors of the Allegheny County Medical Society has been increasingly concerned about the number of physicians reporting work dissatisfaction, stress and feelings of “burnout”, or concern about a dependency on alcohol or drugs… Sadly, a number of physicians in our community have taken their own lives due to personal or professional issues.

While there are counseling programs available, physicians have expressed concerns about anonymity within their health systems or hospitals.

The Society has created a program to provide anonymous counseling, available with PhD level psychologists with experience assisting physicians with multiple geographic locations.

Furthermore, the ACMS will pay for up to four visits for members who access the program without need for an insurance claim. There is no reporting by name or other identifying information. Visits are completely confidential within the counseling practice.

Please see the flyer for more details.

We have an obligation as physicians to support and help each other.

We hope that this program will be helpful to our colleagues who may need help during difficult times.

Sincerely,

David J. Deitrick DO
President

Lawrence R. John, MD
Board Chair
