This project serves both as a glimpse of what it means to practice medicine in America in 2018 and as a commitment to future generations of physicians.

Let’s paint a clear picture of what we want for tomorrow's doctors and start implementing positive changes now.

This is the goal of the Dear Future Doctors project. Through letters to physicians of the future, we can lay bare our hopes for them, pass along our knowledge, and make a commitment to improve the lives of medical professionals.


Write a letter to future physicians. What do you want them to know? Let’s clarify our hopes for the future of medicine. Let’s work to turn those hopes into realities.

Send your letter through the form below and we’ll include it in our Dear Future Doctors online archive.
