Physicians represent a unique occupational cohort, and often approach their own health care differently than they might a patient. The ill, injured, or impaired physician poses a number of challenges for occupational physicians when determining work capacity. This presentation
will take the attendee through the challenges faced by physicians seeking care, the services physicians wished they had, and the challenges in returning ill, injured and impaired physicians back to their work. A series of both complex and simple cases will be reviewed with interactive discussion with the faculty.
