I am so honored to be one of the new regular contributors at Mothers in Medicine! MiM is a group blog that has been around since 2008 as a forum for female physicians to share their unique experiences navigating roles in both medicine and family matters.
The regular contributors range in specialty from pathology to OB to surgery to pediatrics… to many other fields, now including mine. In addition, the contributors vary in their level of training from premed students all the way to full-fledged attendings. While there are now 22 regular contributors generating posts at least a couple times a week, the site also welcomes Q&A and occasional guest posts. They even occasionally do topic weeks with a post from each contributor on an interesting subject, such as “a day in my life” or “how medicine has changed me”.
This important blog is not just for mothers, nor exclusively for doctors. The wide subject matter presented could be useful reading for anyone in the throes of intensive professional training or anyone working to balance their profession with their family life. Check it out and watch for my posts under the pen name PracticeBalance!
