GME Residents and Fellows

The House Office Counseling Service provides an initial evaluation and when indicated can help provide or refer for counseling and/or pharmacotherapy. Every House Officer, that is, any Graduate Medical Education (GME) sponsored resident or fellow, is eligible to receive in-house assessment and counseling.

We want to make it easy and comfortable to discuss your situation  and we are available to see any resident or fellow. We will work with your schedule to quickly find a suitable time to meet and the first visit with us is free and “off the books” in terms of any documentation. During that visit, we will explore together what the best treatment options might be for you. If you choose to pursue counseling, we will get your insurance information and help to determine your benefits.

To access HOCS services:

For new consultations: Please call the confidential voice mail at  508-856-4672 or email Tina (christine.runyan@umassmemorial.org) or Alan (alan.brown@umassmemorial.org) directly.

For continuing contacts: Please feel free to email Tina (christine.runyan@umassmemorial.org) or Alan (alan.brown@umassmemorial.org) directly or our administrative assistant Kathy Anderson (Kathleen.anderson@umassmemorial.org (email, telephone 508-856-6780).

We can see you regardless of your insurance; however, if you do have insurance coverage we will bill subsequent visits to your insurance, which may mean you will have a copay for services. Documentation of counseling will be in EPIC but protected using the “sensitive notes” feature which means that no other clinician in the system will have access to these notes.

The Employment Assistance Program is another great option that is available and the contact information is linked below.
