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!

Physician families come in all shapes and sizes! With a physician (or two!) in our lives, we share the challenges and joys unique to medical families. This issue of Physician Family Magazine focuses on the “Family” part of our name.

We adopted the slogan of our closed Facebook group Physician Family Community for the cover of this issue, because another thing physician families have in common is their strength. There are a few factors which help physician families, regardless of their configuration, to stay #PhysicianFamilyStrong:

Commitment. Communication. Community.

A complete list of articles in in this issue appears HERE.

Each issue of Physician Family features focuses on a relevant theme, covering the issues and challenges faced by medical families, with special emphasis on the four stages of medical life – medical school, residency and fellowship, active practice and retirement. 

Here at Physician Family, we “get it.” You can read this valuable “go-to” guide for medical families, online anywhere, any time – FREE!  Physician Family is published by the American Medical Association Alliance, the nation’s largest network of physician families, connecting physician families for healthier communities since 1922.
