Since 2016, more than 75 ACMS members took advantage of 325 appointments through the Vitality Program.

Recognizing the crushing stress and work load that physicians face today, this program is provided as a membership benefit with confidential,  convenient, competent and cost-free access. Ada County Medical Society is nurturing a medical community where physician vitality forms the basis of providing excellent patient care.


Our providers are sensitive to keeping your personal and professional reputation intact. Your participation in this program is completely voluntary and confidential and may not be mandated as a condition of employment. Neither ACMS, your employer, nor the Board of Medicine will be notified if you choose to participate.

  • No medical diagnosis - only limited therapy notes are kept on paper
  • No insurance billing - ACMS has a billing process that allows for no participant names to be submitted
  • No electronic record created 
Participants must sign an understanding of the therapist's limits of confidentiality under certain legal statutes. Please review this form and bring with you to your first appointment.


Our therapists have been vetted by physicians for their experience with and sensitivity to the challenges which doctors commonly face. However, we do not independently verify credentials nor do we guarantee suitability for any particular issue for which an ACMS member may seek help. Please review the credentials of therapists per your own standards.

"This program effectively removes a great deal of barriers for physicians to access the counseling they need. I think it's one of the best uses of resources to improve the well being of our docs in the community. This is a great resource and I'm happy to donate to this cause." -Justin Korinek, MD, CEP America-Idaho

Cost-Free Access

Appointments are available during hours physicians can access in Meridian and Boise. 7 AM-7 PM, Monday - Friday are typical and some evening and weekend hours are also available.

Up to 8 sessions per twelve-month period (starting with first appointment) are provided free as a benefit to Ada County Medical Society members: physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners; residents, active or retired. Family may attend counseling sessions with members, but the client of record is the ACMS member and must be present.
