In Reply Our Viewpoint on dual-physician households1 was intended to serve as a resource for early-career dual-physician couples across the spectrum of gender, sexual orientation, and marital status.2,3 Throughout our careers, we, as professional women, have sought advice from more senior professional women on similar career paths in the same way that dual-physician couples have sought advice from other dual-physician couples for decades.4 As stated in our Viewpoint, we recognize that many of the challenges and strategies we discussed apply to other professional households. Nevertheless, the medical profession does present several unique challenges and experiences (just as other professions have their own), and providing early-career physicians with resources can only help with recruitment and retention of a talented workforce and help them to be more productive.
