Physician Health & Rehabilitation


Mission: The Physician Health and Rehabilitation (PH&R) Committee's mission is to assist our participants (primarily MDs, DOs, and PAs) who have Substance Use Disorders and/or Depression to seek the help they need, and to monitor them appropriately to ensure they are safe to practice medicine.

Purpose: The PH&R Committee’s goal is to advocate and aid in recovery success of the impaired physician.

Function: PH&R is a confidential advocacy group of physicians that identify and facilitate recovery success for other physicians with Substance Use Disorders (Alcohol and/or Drugs) and depression, through support and monitoring, using a series of meetings, discussions, and other activities. The BCMS PH&R Committee will provide responsible advocacy to designated medical boards, hospital PH&R committees, credentialing authorities, and others at the request of the participants who maintain compliance within our program.

Committee: The Chair is appointed by the President. All other members of the committee are appointed by the President based upon time, interest, and commitment. However, the PH&R Committee prefers physicians with substance abuse related experience.

Meetings: The PH&R Committee meets on the last Thursday of each month at 5 p.m. The required attendance commitment for committee participation is 50%. Volunteers are asked to commit to the attendance (participation) requirement of a minimum of six meetings of this committee during the year.

Inquiries, participation, discussions, meeting information and help with related issues can be submitted to the Staff Liaison. 

Caduceus Meetings: Occur every Thursday from 7-8p.m. Here at the BCMS Office
