Dr. Masood founded Physician Support Line, an anonymous psychiatrist-staffed hotline available to any physician in need -- no stressor is too small or too large.   The  COVID crisis brought physician mental health issues to the forefront and  was the critical event leading to the founding of this hotline in March of 2020.

Physician Support Line is 1-888-409-0141 and staffed 8am-midnight EST weekdays.
