The Married to Doctors podcast pushes away the stereotypical "doctor-wife" image and is a space where people from all different backgrounds can find a community, explore solutions and share stories about the unique challenges that come from being in a relationship where medicine often feels like the extra partner. We discuss loneliness, debt, communication, romance, moving, parenting and more.
 The host of Married to Doctors is Lara McElderry, a trauma surgeon's wife, who has been navigating the medical world for the last seventeen years as she’s supported her husband through medical school, residency, a specialty change, fellowship, as well as raising five boys. She hopes the podcast will inspire others to share and implement ideas for how to make successful homes happier.

A God Send

This Podcast was recommended to me by one of my best friends who is also a doctors spouse. Her and I met our partners at a party right as they were graduating med school. They now live in Rochester, MN and we located to Gainesville, FL for residency. When we first met he had already matched to the program here so I sort of had to decide if this is something I really wanted to pursue. We’re starting our second year here and I seriously wish I found this podcast sooner! The first 6 months I struggled to make connections in our new town. Listening to the podcasts about relocating and being happy in your current situation is something I needed to hear. Our families live back in Wisconsin and we’ve been planning our wedding while living with the fun unpredictable scheduling of residency. This podcast validates all the feelings I had and made me realize how I’m not actually so alone. I am definitely a life long listener. Keep up the great work, love all the topics.

Great Resource

I love this podcast! It’s so helpful and informative in a space that’s really lacking resources. When your spouse starts the medical journey and you don’t know anything about what’s coming it can be scary. This podcast helps form more of a community and gives insight into what it’s like to be married to a doctor or student doctor. I would love more content for spouses of students - information and advice about how to handle the schooling years, what rotations are like, and hearing what advice those who have made it through have for people going through the journey. Loved the matching series but would love some more episodes focused on the school journey as well! Thank you for all your work making this podcast!

So helpful!!

Thank you so much for this podcast. My husband is in his 3rd year of medical school and we have a 3 year old with another one on the way. Listening to other people who are on this journey has helped me tremendously. Thanks!
