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

The Winter 2018 issue of Physician Family focuses on Medical Marriage. We've tried to explore many different kinds of medical families: those in which the physician is male and those in which the physician is female. We look at couples still in training, those in retirement and those in the middle of the active practice years. We look at same-sex couples and, sadly, a marriage that didn't make it - and why. A recurring theme is this: a successful medical marriage, or any kind of relationship with a physician, requires TEAMWORK.
