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.

Medical Moving

If you are a medical family (which you most likely are reading this blog!) you probably have or will move several times throughout the course of the medical training.

Early summer is always a tough time of year for me. If we personally were not moving, we were saying good-bye to many friends that were. This year my husband is finishing up his last year of training and we are moving for him to start his official job. Over the past few days I've been trying to come up with something encouraging and inspiring to write about moving. How to plan. What to prepare for. How to adjust to a new community. The best ways to help your children adjust to all of the changes.

Basically, all of the difficult parts of packing up your life in one location and moving on to the next. Although we have moved multiple times over my husband's training I certainly don't have all of the answers. So, in my search for answers to pass on I have read some great blogs that address these issues head on and I wanted to post them for you all! They certainly have been helpful and encouraging to me.
