What is the Committee For Physician Health (CPH)?

This organization is a division of the Medical Society of the State of New York and it exists to help physicians, physicians in training and physician assistants who have difficulties with stress, substance abuse, psychiatric issues and other physical and emotional situations. If you are being investigated by OPMC for a substance abuse issue, it is extremely helpful if you are in a CPH program as OPMC will view that participation very favorably if a question arises as to whether or can continue to practice medicine. Alcoholism and drug addiction are the most common issues and the Committee For Physician Health programs are well versed in the methods which will help you overcome these very serious difficulties.
