Medical resident dating
Do note call includes saturdays and sundays, too, so if you get a Saturday call, you essentially have no weekend. She says preparing for call the day before is like preparing to go to war.It’s not necessarily a job you can put down when you get home, either. Residents have crazy things happen to them, often multiple crazy things on the same day. At least then you know what your resident is talking about, a little bit. Your resident does not want to perform physical exams at Thanksgiving. Recognize sleep deprivation for what it is, and not a larger sign of relationship trouble. Your resident is not trying to be difficult, or selfish, or lazy. It is likely very frustrating for your resident to watch Grey's Anatomy or its television siblings. Don't make that difficult by complaining it's late, there are dinner plans, and there is no time to shower. Your resident probably doesn't know enough to actually help, even if he or she wanted to -- and, most likely, he or she doesn't want to. But that knee pain, or those warts -- tell them to see their actual doctor, and hold the questions. That's not an excuse, but understand that on the rare day off, maybe 13 hours of sleep is what your resident needs, even more than a delicious brunch that you even made a reservation for. Indulge your resident's use of the pause button on the DVR when watching shows with medical elements. he checks her work- did she diagnose correctly, is she giving the right meds? Usually, things quieten down around 2am, and she goes for a shower and tries to get some sleep.
Whenever possible, we found ourselves in the forest exploring the world on foot or, if the weather was bad, on long drives that led to nowhere.
I don’t think it’s fair, by the way, to call him a jerk just because he may not spend alot of time with you.
He doesn’t abuse or at least, I don’t think is playing games with you ( again, Doctors don’t have much time for games)I wish you all the best in your relationship.
Residency is a strange place where a doctor is ‘qualified’ but is still learning their trade. A typical week for my girlfriend goes like this: She wakes up at 5.30 am to prepare for work, and is out of the house by 6.15am. Rounds are where she takes over from the night call doctor ( who explains to her anything that went on in the night, checks on the patients in her assigned ward, etc.) . If she is on call ( on average, 1–2 times a week), she doesn’t go home a 6pm. She goes for a quick dinner, and prepares for NIGHT rounds at around 730pm.
Her boss comes in at around 8am and she presents and consults all the patients in her ward to him (i.e. Night rounds last till 10pm, after which she has to order any meds or tests on patients that her boss has asked her to, or check in any new patients that have come in.In any relationship theres always going to be one who gives more than receives- if you date a doctor, that’s likely to be you (not that you dont benefit in other awesome ways, but that’s a different story)How then, do you know if he is interested in you? You need to reconfigure our mind from a quantity mindset to a quality mindset. But if he chooses to spend that timewith you- That’s a sure indicator that you are of high value.
