The University of Kentucky and Department of Neurology values you and your well-being. Being a physician isn't easy. Difficulties with the current health care delivery system, maintaining a healthy work/life/family balance, and dealing with the normal stresses of everyday life can take their toll on physicians. PWP is designed as a safe harbor for our physicians to address normal life difficulties in a confidential and professional setting. Trainees are afforded six free sessions each calendar year.
Residents have access to taxi services from the hospital in the event they are too fatigued to drive safely. A return trip to campus is also available.
