New Resident and Fellow Assistance Program Now Available
A new and expanded Resident Assistance Program is now available to UT Graduate School of Medicine residents and fellows provided through Employee Network Inc., a national company. This program, called Balance Works™, is the same resident support system now used on all three UT Health Science Center campuses and is designed to assist residents and fellows with balancing their academic and personal lives via professional support and a personal assistant. The program offers counseling services for areas including academic/work issues, relationship issues, stress, and the like. This support system is unique in that it also provides a personalized web portal with access to articles, self-help tools, and interactive videos for personal and academic development. The personal assistant can also help with referrals, research, trip planning, insurance information, dining and entertainment, and more. All services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The basic Balance Works™ program is provided as a part of the GSM benefit package for residents and fellows. To register and get started with this support program, call 800-327-2255 or sign up online at http://mybalanceworks.com.
