The Woodland Group

The Lexington Medical Society Physician Wellness Program is a partnership with the Woodland Group and the UK College of Medicine to provide counseling services to students and residents at all UK College of Medicine campuses with 24/7 availability.

The Woodland Group includes seven licensed psychologists. Steven Smith, PhD, and Sandra Hough, PhD, are program coordinators and serve as points of contact. The Woodland Group maintains a confidential file for each student and resident, but no insurance will be billed, and the UK College of Medicine will not receive any information about those who utilize the program. As such, this program is completely confidential. Students and residents have access to 12 free visits per calendar year.

The Woodland Group is located at 535 W. 2nd Street, Suite 207, and also offers tele-mental health visits.

To make an appointment:

  • Call the confidential hotline at 800-350-6438, and leave a message in either Dr. Smith’s or Dr. Hough’s voice mailbox.
  • They will call you back to schedule an appointment. It’s that simple!
