Abstract

PHYSICIANS' HEALTH: HISTORY AND INTRODUCTION Peter A. Mansky, M.D., Guest Editor In the early 1970's the American Medical Association urged its state members to develop committees to support physicians who suffered from psychiatric illnesses, especially Substance Use Dis- orders. Programs were created in many states which usually in- volved physicians recovering from an addictive disorder helping other physicians. In this way these programs set up a peer assis- tance network to reach out to physicians suffering primarily from Substance Use Disorders. Overtime the programs have developed into Physician Health Programs addressing psychiatric illnesses effecting physician im- pairment. Program Directors were usually addictionologists with- out training in psychiatry. Now many have credentials in both psychiatry and addiction. A meeting was held in Estes Park Colorado in September of 1996 to discuss issues of research concerning aspects of physi- cians' health. The meeting consisted of individuals representing major organizations involved in physicians' health at a national level. They included the American Medical Association, The American Society of Addiction Medicine, the American Psychiat- ric Association, The American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry, the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and the Federa- tion of State Physician Health Programs.
