Counseling and Crisis Management Services
The UI Hospitals and Clinics, its GME administration, program directors and clinical staff involved in house staff training, recognize that graduate medical and dental education places increasing responsibility on house staff members and requires sustained intellectual and physical effort. It is also recognized that for some, these demands will, at times, cause physical and/or emotional stress. It is further recognized that spouses and children of house staff members may encounter similar stress during the course of residency and fellowship training. In all such instances, house staff physicians, dentists and members of their immediate families are encouraged to seek help. In that regard, resources are provided for counseling and crisis management.
