The Federation of State Physician Health Programs, Inc. (FSPHP) is a national membership association of Physician and Health Professional Programs (PHPs) designed to support physician health programs in improving the health of medical professionals, thereby contributing to quality patient care. FSPHP is a 501c3 nonprofit established in 1991, that evolved from initiatives taken by the American Medical Association (AMA), the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), State Medical Societies/Associations and individual state physician health programs. Our member programs provide confidential assessment, referral to treatment, resources and monitoring for physicians/healthcare professionals, and those in training who may be at risk of impairment from mental illness, substance use disorders and other health conditions. When indicated, ongoing health monitoring by a PHP provides trusted accountability that supports successful continuation or return to practice. Most importantly, state member programs provide a confidential, therapeutic alternative to discipline and have the support of organized medicine in their state or province often through legislation, exceptions to mandated reporting, or other safe haven provisions. In addition to working with participants, PHPs provide education, outreach, and advocacy to their medical communities in support of physician health and well-being.
