Contributor Guidelines

We love guest posts from physician spouses and partners who have great stories and advice to share with our community!

A few points to keep in mind before you share your pitch:

  • We only accept content made exclusively for The MedCommons.
  • Please do not submit syndicated or duplicate content.
  • Most posts are 750 – 1,000 words (but being slightly under/over is okay!).
  • Stats or facts must be linked to original, credible sources.
  • No affiliate links will be accepted.

Content Themes

Content on our site is primarily organized in four categories. Your contribution is more likely to be accepted if it covers one of these topics.

  • Money
  • Relationships
  • Careers
  • Health & Wellness

Keep It Positive

We offer our members a safe, inclusive space to find support through their medical education journey. Contributions that are unhelpful, damaging, and/or harmful will not be accepted or tolerated. This includes but is not limited to disparaging comments about specific people, specialties, spouse groups, practices, medical programs, and/or hospitals.

Connect With People Who Understand

Medical moves without friends, family and a sense of community can be lonely and isolating. It shouldn’t feel that way. We’re here to help. We’ve built a way for you to connect with a community of physician spouses who know from experience that ​​residencies and fellowships are emotional and exhausting times. Quickly develop much-needed friendships to provide the comprehensive support you need.
