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.

AMA Alliance Introduces New Family Focus and Discount Benefits

As a result of recent action by the AMA Alliance to broaden the scope of membership to include spouses and life partners, with full rights and privileges, a regular member of the AMA Alliance may be "any member of a physician or medical student couple, present or former, at least one of whom is a physician or medical student who is or was eligible to be a member of the AMA; or an individual physician or medical student who is eligible to be a member of the AMA."

In addition, some exciting new membership benefits newly introduced include:

Sears "Employee" Discount Program: Not available in any Sears store. It is the Alliance's way of saying thank you for your membership and support for the AMA Alliance and the work we do for medical families and healthy families everywhere.

Bally’s Total Fitness:The Alliance has teamed up with Bally’s Total Fitness to provide members with a corporate discount to enroll in the Club’s most popular membership plan—The Basic National Access easy monthly payment plan membership—for only $24.99 per month with no enrollment fee! You can sign up for as little as a few months or as many as you’d like.
Membership in the Alliance for medical students and spouses is only $10, and it’s easy to join online.
