Medical Family Therapy (MedFT), like most fields and specialties, started with a vision. Over the last few decades, pioneers have been training the next generation to carry this vision into an ever-changing community and healthcare landscape. Over time, it has become increasingly clear that the spirit of MedFT cannot just be carried in the minds of those professionals. MedFTs have to turn that vision into reality. Considerable work has advanced in this vein, including the development of multiple degree and certificate programs, greater presence in healthcare environments, and advocacy for collaboratively oriented care. None of this progress could have occurred without the steady leadership of MedFTs. As we look to our future, it is important to visit the experiences of some MedFTs, new and seasoned, to gain a sense of where we have been and where we are going.
