Physician Assistance Funds

TMA Physician Health and Rehabilitation Assistance Fund
The PHR Assistance Fund provides financial assistance to physicians who cannot afford treatment for depression, Substance Use Disorders, or other problems or whose families need help with short-term living expenses while a physician receives treatment. The fund is designed to assist physicians and their families in need while the physician is not employed because he or she is receiving treatment.
