Program for House Staff Well-Being
The Program for House Staff Well-Being was established to meet some of the needs of house staff at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. It does so by providing psychiatric assistance to help deal with any emotional difficulty you may experience, whatever the nature of the problem or degree of seriousness.
Confidential assessment, evaluation, and referral for psychiatric service is available. If you would like more information about this program, please phone Dr. Michael Kahn at 617-667-8322 or via page ID 92020. Dr. Kahn will meet with you and will direct your care as appropriate.
Seeking help can be difficult, especially in the competitive atmosphere of a medical education setting. Our hope is that it will not be necessary for you to use this program, but we want you to know that help is available if the need arises.
