In September 2008, the committee was charged with the immediate activities of:
- Developing and implementing a suicide awareness message for faculty, physicians and leadership.
- Developing and implementing leadership training opportunities.
- Creating a support network/mentoring system for identifying and referring those in distress.
- Conducting grand rounds on wellness topics.
The FPWC is here to serve and support members of our academic community and provide educational opportunities for all departments within the medical center. We are available to speak with faculty at department meetings; to provide training in professionalism; and to assist department chairs and division heads in their effort to identify and refer colleagues in distress.
