A significant role of a Physician's Health Program, PHP, is to provide educational programs to the healthcare community at large, as well as to the participants themselves. Such education includes the availability of the program and services provided; addiction as a disease including diagnosis, treatment and continued recovery; mental illness as a disease including diagnosis, treatment and continued follow-up; other physician well-being issues such as physical health, work-holism, stress management, suicide, age related physical and mental decline, and life outside of the workplace.
Our educational programs offer CME credits. We provide educational programs to hospitals, medical staffs, medical societies, medical schools, residencies, medical boards, law boards and interested others. If you are interested in an educational presentation, please feel free to contact us.
