An emergency medicine physician in Los Angeles, California, Zachary Lutsky spent more than a decade in an attending position at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Board-certified in emergency medicine, Dr. Zachary Lutsky maintains membership in professional organizations including the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP).

The American College of Emergency Physicians works to support both the physical and mental health of physicians through initiatives such as the ACEP Wellness & Assistance Program. In coordination with Mines & Associates, the program provides physicians with access to three counseling or wellness sessions to help them bear the emotional and physical burden of their work.

Counseling sessions, which can take place in person or by phone, might help doctors develop tools to combat anxiety, depression, substance abuse, or relationship issues. Alternately, 30-minute wellness phone calls from a certified wellness coach can help physicians identify steps to pursue their fitness and wellness goals. The strictly confidential program is available for free to all ACEP members.
