MomDocFamily is a multi-disciplinary group of women doctors representing all stages of careers and medical training. Members are committed to supporting one another's efforts to attain professional success and personal satisfaction. Included in the MomDocFamily mission is the dedication to learn from each other's experiences by openly discussing career and parenting strategies.
