A space dedicated to the diverse and dynamic community that exists on the flipside of the white coat.
We are the wives, husbands and partners of medical students, physicians and surgeons. In some families, we are doctors too. We work tirelessly and quietly behind the scenes. We help to ensure the doctors we love are supported. We are the keepers of our families. We are the organizers and executors of details big and small. TFSL is a space dedicated to enhancing the lives of physician families, one meaningful connection at a time.
To foster meaningful connection and create a diverse and inclusive community that supports and enhances the lives of physician families through advocacy, education, mentorship and events.
Our healthcare systems are dependent on healthy physicians. We believe that physician mental health begins at home. When physician families are thriving and supported, the mental health and well-being of doctors is strengthened. This makes the delivery of quality, compassionate care both possible and sustainable. Families can provide unique and important support, and need to start being included in conversations related to physician mental health and wellness. Let's get better, together.
Our world has been drastically changed by COVID19. The needs of our community have also changed as a result. To help ensure all Physician Families feel supported during the uncertainty that lies ahead, TFSL is offering FREE confidential virtual peer support calls every Thursday at 9pmEST for all spouses and partners.
Access to a free private FB group is also available to all spouses and partners of medical students, residents and staff physicians.
One to One mentorship, and small group mentorship remains available too.
TFSL's inaugural virtual event,
'The Better Together Project' took place on July 9th. Stay tuned for more virtual and in person (hopefully one day again soon) events to come!
