How many people have a significant other during medical school? Well, in my class Class of , 54 students , I count 14 classmates who are currently married, and another 12 of us who are engaged. And there are a whole lot of other people who are in dating relationships. These statistics could be an abnormality unique to my class, but I know there are many students in the other classes here at USCSOMG who are dating, engaged, or married, too.
How do you even have time to date someone during medical school??? There may be days or weeks that are harder to do that than others for example, test week is almost never a good time for a date , but there are plenty of good times to have fun outside of school if you plan it right for example, post-test weekends are the best time for dating.
What about long-distance relationships during medical school? What are the best date ideas for someone dating a medical student? Admittedly, though, thoughtful surprises during a stressful week of medical school are always appreciated! How do you even have time to plan a wedding?
Wedding planning uses those same skills. Personally, I like to use my wedding planning time as a reward for getting through scheduled study time for the day. Does it matter what kind of engagement ring you get, because you are going to be a doctor?
However, a lower setting for your ring might be easier for those times when you quickly pull on exam gloves to palpate skin or touch a rash. When is the best time to get married during medical school? Most of my classmates have scheduled their weddings over summer breaks after first and second year, simply because that is when we have the longest breaks during our academic calendar. However, some classmates have gotten married over Christmas break, Labor Day weekend, and even during a normal weekend between rotations during 3rd year.
There are plenty of options of wedding dates for those who want to be more creative. Does anyone have kids during medical school? There are several students at our school who have children. I think most of them treat medical school as a job, and they make sure that they leave by dinnertime every day. The rest of us love it when they bring their kids for a visit to school for an evening special speaker or for another event. Yes, this is a real question that one of my classmates has been asked!!
And of course the answer is no, although anyone who marries a medical student has to realize that they are taking on a whole lot of student loans and a very time-demanding career — dating or marrying you is a big commitment for them, too. I never expected to spend four more years here in Greenville, but I could not be more excited to have the opportunity to stay and be a part of this incredible program at the USC School of Medicine in Greenville!
