Physician Family Media

If there’s a physician in your family, you’ve probably asked one or more of these questions: 

  • How do we handle our huge medical school debt? 
  • How do I explain why Mommy/Daddy can’t make it to school events? 
  • How should I handle people who think we’ve “got it made” because there’s a physician in the family?
  • What should we look for in a contract? 
  • What happens if he/she gets sued? 
  • How do we keep our relationship healthy when we hardly ever see each other? 
  • What about financial planning? 
  • My physician spouse just retired – now what?

Families of physicians face unique challenges that people who aren’t part of the Family of Medicine don’t fully comprehend.

Alliance in Motion (AiM) Magazine, now included as a bonus inside of Physician Family, features the work of Alliance members at the county, state and national levels across the country. AMA Alliance members receive Physician Family/AiM in the mail as an exclusive member benefit.
