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.

Won't You Join Us?

Now that you’ve been matched to your residency program, you are invited to also match your family to your new community. The AMA Alliance is the only nationwide physician spouse health advocacy network and the largest volunteer arm of the AMA.

As you both learn ways to survive the tough medical training years and to balance family and residency, it helps to have a strong network that includes others in your situation. As a physician spouse who understands and cares about the family of medicine in this country, I highly recommend adding the AMA Alliance to your support network. Your $10 dues will connect you to a network of physician spouses who understand the joys and struggles of a medical family. Please click on this link to join today. http://www.amaalliance.org/site/epage/40263_625.htm
