Residents & Fellows

Hi and Welcome! We are glad you are visiting our website. If you have come to this site to learn more about the GME Mental Health Program offered to University of Arizona Residents and Fellows than you are in the right place. We would like to invite you review some of the resources that we have available including links to many excellent websites, modules and community resources.

The University of Arizona has long been known as the trailblazer for wellness and integrative care.  We recognize the value of providing mental health services to our trainees, both in maintaining the health of those who will be providing the future of medical care, but also in the value that mentally healthy physicians can bring to the institution and most importantly to patient care.

Many physicians avoid seeking treatment due to concerns about confidentiality and so we have developed a confidential process for you to request care with private practice psychiatrists with expertise in working with the unique challenges faced by residents and fellows at no cost to you. Both medication and psychotherapy services are available, and if needed additional referrals to community providers.

You can fill out the completely confidential form through this link. The information here is only accessible to the psychiatrists who will reach out to you through confidential email or phone to schedule a meeting. We look forward to meeting with you!
