Program Highlights

WPHP provides early intervention, assessment, treatment referral and post-treatment monitoring for health professionals who may not be able to practice safely due to an impairing or potentially impairing health condition. In some cases, support and referral are all that is needed to put concerns to rest. In others, a more serious illness is identified that requires further diagnostic evaluation, treatment and monitoring to support sustained illness remission, safe practice, and WPHP advocacy efforts on behalf of the participant.

Who We Serve

Health-care professionals are important guardians of their patients’ health, but are often hesitant to seek help for their colleagues or themselves. WPHP provides services to physicians, physician assistants, dentists, and veterinarians, as well as students and residents of these disciplines. Active licensure is not a requirement for participation.
