St Charles, Missouri — Physician families face a unique set of challenges. As one spouse works their way through medical school and residency, their partners are often left wondering how best to offer their support while experiencing isolation and loneliness themselves.
The MedCommons—a platform that provides resources and community for physician families—is here to help. The new digital magazine and online community feature accessible support and ways for physician families to connect.
“I created this community because I want physician families today to have a better experience than what we had as they go through medical school, training, and beyond,” said Elizabeth Landry, The MedCommons founder and CEO. “I felt particularly drawn to find a way to better support spouses and partners of medical residents, a time when people frequently report feeling the most lonely and isolated.”
The MedCommons offers physicians and their spouses resources to guide them in making informed decisions for the whole family’s professional, financial, and emotional well-being. The safe, inclusive online space helps physician spouses navigate vital areas in their lives.
The MedCommons is free of charge, funded by sponsors who want to support the physician family community while building brand awareness and engagement through articles, guest posts, and more.
“I’m proud to have cultivated a community where my fellow physicians’ spouses and partners feel heard by a community that understands,” Landry said.
The new website was designed and developed by Rep Cap, a B2B content marketing and brand publishing consultancy based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
