WUMCHA (wümchä), the Washington University Medical Center Housestaff Auxiliary, a department of Barnes Jewish Hospital, has acted as a support group to address the unique needs of spouses, partners, residents, fellows, and attending physicians affiliated with the Medical Center since 1982. These people, the majority of whom have relocated to St. Louis, have special life stresses that WUMCHA strives to address.

WUMCHA is comprised of physicians, nurses, attorneys, teachers, stay-at-home parents, designers, students, professors, musicians, artists (and the list goes on) that share the common bond of managing medical careers, medical marriages, medical families and the unique challenges faced in this environment.​
