Partners and Families in Medicine

This group is specifically designed for partners and family members of medical students.  We know the road in medical school can be equally difficult for family members of medical students.  Join us for social events throughout the year where you can share your feelings, thoughts, and experiences with other partners and family members of medical students. Contact us if you are interested in learning more.
