Faculty and Physician Wellness Program celebrates 15 years of service

The summer of 2014 marks the 15th anniversary of the establishment of the Vanderbilt Faculty and Physician Wellness Program (FPWP).

In 1999, Work/Life Connections–EAP, under the leadership of Executive Director Mary Yarbrough, developed a specialized program to offer psychological support to Vanderbilt faculty in all 10 university schools, as well as medical center house staff, spouses and same-sex domestic partners.

Since the FPWP was established, more than 2,500 faculty, physicians and their significant others have received counseling, coaching, consultation and other services from Work/Life Connections–EAP’s team of licensed professionals. These services are provided in an easily accessible, confidential and compassionate environment. The program is known throughout the country as a model for targeted and effective intervention for university and medical center professionals.
