Advice on dating a doctor
We lived together during his 2nd year, but due to the program he was in and my job, we lived apart during his 3rd and 4th years (about 200 miles).The relationship we had during medical school helped us prepare for what it would be like during residency.The demands are quite high (maybe not that of surgery) but he has other commitments due to the military as well.We have been together since our senior year of college, and were dating/engaged throughout medical school.But in addition to all of that YOU need to realize that there is another person who is cheering you on and wants you to succeed.
SECOND POST: Hi there: I'm a wife of a family medicine intern in a military residency.
I provide him a space where we can talk and do about other things.
Encourage her to have a balanced life in this way because is what will make her a better doctor in the long run.
I spent countless days helping him organize his notes and prepping study materials for him. We used to joke that our trips to the grocery store were dates, but we genuinely enjoyed that time together and he was able to feel like he was still contributing around the house. I always knew that med school was in his future, and all that goes along with it.
He needed help focusing some of his efforts and knew he could reach out to me. I am a very independent person and went to numerous functions on my own because I knew he wouldn't be able to go because of school. Make sure you strongly think about your life ahead.
