The Faculty and Physician Wellness Program is available to provide psychological support to the Vanderbilt faculty of all ten University Schools as well as housestaff and spouses.
In 1999, Vanderbilt began a specialized Faculty and Physician Wellness Program (FPWP) that utilizes a work-based, internal Employee Assistance Program (EAP) model. The program was established to meet the growing needs of professionals coping with stress, depression, addiction and other emotional and behavioral issues. The keys to success are easy accessibility, proximity, confidentiality, and compassion.
Since the program was established, over one thousand faculty and physicians have received care through the program, with 90% being self-referred.
