WELCOME to the first publication for people who share their lives with a physician – Physician Family Magazine, a publication created by and for medical families!

The Spring 2018 issue of Physician Family Magazine focuses on the value of mentors and mentorship, from the standpoint of both the mentor and the mentee. A medical student and brand new attending physician write about their mentors. There are several features by and about accomplished people who mentor others. Two “seasoned” Alliance leaders share some of their strategies for mentoring younger members in their county Alliances. The president of the AMA Alliance (www.amaalliance.org) and the founder of Dads Married to Doctors share strategies for mentoring their respective constituencies. Even this issue’s Food Solutions features thoughts about a mentor!

No matter where you’re at in your personal #JourneyOfMedicine, if you’d like to be a mentor or find one, the AMA Alliance and our state and county affiliates can help. For more information, check out our website (www.amaalliance.org), Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/AMAAlliance) or email affiliaterelations@amaalliance.org.

Whether your current role is as a mentor or a mentee, much is to be gained by all parties when seasoned experience meets youthful exuberance – and it makes the ride SO much more fun!

As medical marriage, physician burnout and the opioid epidemic are ongoing concerns of the AMA Alliance, the Winter 2018 issue, the Summer 2017 issue and the Fall 2017 issues may also be accessed from this page. All former issues of Physician Family are available in our Archive.
