Everyone knows that medical school and residency are stressful for young physicians. The AMA Alliance knows that the training years can be just as challenging for the physician's spouse. Our new blog offers resources to provide specific support for partners of physicians in training, as well as assistance in finding an Alliance in your area.

We know that support for the family of medicine is most comforting when it is provided by the family of medicine.

Support needed for national Cover the Uninsured Week

The American Medical Association’s Medical Student Section (MSS) has been very active in supporting efforts to cover the uninsured. Last year, more than 50 MSS chapters organized events during Cover the Uninsured Week in addition to year-long efforts to support this National Service Project. As part of our ongoing efforts, we are proud to support the 2009 Cover the Uninsured Week from March 22 to 28 this year. We would greatly appreciate and encourage all Alliance members to help in this campaign at the local level and to contact the national Alliance for the names of our MSS contact in their area. Thank you very much. Learn more
