Peer to peer program
The UW Medicine Peer to Peer Program is designed to provide a supportive listener after a stressful event or when the job feels overwhelming. Any care team member can access one on one support from a colleague in their field – a trained peer supporter.
Preventing violence is a shared responsibility in which everyone at the UW plays a part. The SafeCampus website provides information on counseling and safety resources, University policies, and violence reporting requirements that help us maintain a safe personal, work, and learning environment.

Washington Physicians Health Program
Since 1986, the Washington Physicians Health Program (WPHP) has assisted with the recovery and return to work of thousands of healthcare providers. WPHP offers services to healthcare providers who have a medical condition that could impact their clinical performance. These services include general outreach, crisis intervention, informal assessment, treatment monitoring, and support for providers who need help. WPHP believes that early intervention and evaluation offer the best opportunity for a successful outcome and help to protect patient safety.
Under certain circumstances and with prior authorization, UW employees may provide outside professional work for compensation.
