Well-Being Committee Review Process

  • Review information from referral sources (self-referrals, colleague referrals, Supervisor/Medical Board referrals) that concerns the well-being of physicians and physicians-in-training.
  • Meet with the individual whom the Committee is attempting to help.
  • Determine if a problem exists and, if so, the nature of the problem.
  • Develop a plan with the physician or physician-in-training to address the problem. This plan may include a number of treatment options.
  • Formalize that plan into a contract between the Committee and the individual.
  • Monitor the treatment progress of the individual.
  • If the individual either refuses to follow the recommended plan or fails to comply with its terms, transmit that information to the Chief of Staff.
