Dating a first year medical resident
But when you add the demands and stress of medical school it makes things a little more tricky. I’m assuming you have a calendar with your schedule on it. : If you have any important dates (work, events, family) where you would like your loving med student to join you, then please, please, please, let them know as soon as you know. But also, dating partners, don’t drop a bomb on your med student the night before their exams. (I may or may not have done that multiple times.) In Conclusion… ***Bonus tip for the dating partner: If this all sounds like way too much work and sacrifice, then go with Plan B: Go have a life for 7-10 years, and hook back up when they are a real, practicing doctor.
He/she is the one that still remembers what it’s like to have freedom and no responsibility as a 3rd and 4th year medical student.
Since this resident is usually smarter than the average bear, they often times impart unique clinical knowledge to the student.
The funny thing about this resident is that I am MUCH more willing to do the lowest of scutwork to help him/her out because of their teaching and understanding of the medical student’s role.
Kevin Dwyer is happily engaged to a second-year resident he began dating when she was in medical school, but he admits that their progress as a couple did not come without its lessons and challenges.
If you insist on dragging someone into this mess, there are four things you need to know…and when I say : Just to be clear and make sure you understand… Be prepared to be the one that bends, and then bends again and again and again throughout this entire journey. Hopefully, they can plan their study schedule around it. It’s probably is easier to go through these medical school years single, but knowing someone is in your corner, cheering you on, and sharing this journey with you, can be worth all the blood, sweat, and tears.
I have also noticed that this type of resident is usually more efficient and smarter than his/her colleagues.
