If you think medical school is hard, try dating someone who's in it.
Dating a doctor-to-be is a challenge and an adventure.
So here’s the best advice, from me and my classmates, for maintaining a romantic relationship during your second year of medical school: Medical school is a very stressful time in your life, especially in your second year. It doesn’t matter whether you’re dating another medical professional or someone outside medicine, communication will help build and strengthen your relationship. It’s hard to spend the day in clinic listening to patients’ problems and then go home and listen to your significant other’s problems. Medical school is overwhelming, but your significant other may be overwhelmed as well.
You’re running around to clinic, studying for Step 1 all while you’re trying to learn the information you need to become a good student-doctor in your third year. You need to listen to stories about their day, their upcoming schedule, and their life.
I’m not sure yet but I’m enjoying the balance that I found here in third year.
