ACMS' Physician Vitality Program

Find a A provider - Make an Appointment


Our mental health providers (MHPs) 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 of your name if you choose to participate.

  • No medical diagnosis - only limited therapy notes are kept on paper
  • No insurance billing - our billing process does not allow for participant names to be submitted
  • Limited electronic records created (e.g. calendaring, consent to treat, and telehealth software, all of which will be disclosed and explained by the therapist).

Participants must sign an understanding of the MHP's limits of confidentiality under certain legal statutes. Please review our consent to treat forms prior to your first appointment, although you will go over this paperwork in your first appointment.


Our MHPs have been vetted by ACMS member physicians and/or behavioral health professionals for their experience with and sensitivity to the challenges that doctors and other healthcare workers commonly face. While we do verify licensure with the State of Idaho, we do not necessarily independently verify all claims of experience or certification, nor do we guarantee suitability for any particular issue for which an ACMS member may seek help. Please review the credentials and experience of MHPs per your own standards. "This program effectively removes a lot 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, Vituity


To make an appointment

1) View the list of contract MHPs and make contact with one of them to make an appointment.

2) Identify yourself as a member of Ada County Medical Society (or other qualifying medical association) and that you are utilizing this benefit. 

If you are having trouble getting an appointment, you may call or text (415) PVP-ACMS (787-2267) for assistance, although at that point, your anonymity with ACMS may not be absolutely preserved from the executive director if caller ID shows up. 


A portion of membership dues and your tax-deductible donations to the ACMS Foundation help make this program possible. 

Appointments are available during hours physicians can access in the Treasure Valley and via telehealth statewide. 

The free benefit for ACMS members is FIVE (5) sessions per twelve-month period (starting with the first appointment.) 

Eligible members include physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners; residents, active or retired, and WWAMI Students. Family members may attend counseling sessions with members, but the client of record is the ACMS member and must be present.
