Benefits of dating a medical student
The most unique part of this article was the use of “advisors” that students could meet with before the conference to help them plan what sessions to attend and how to make the most out of the experience. You might go to a conference and find yourself thinking, “I want to do this for the rest of my life.” but instead of becoming that lasting and stable passion you hoped for, your interest takes a short but intense course.They also met after the conference with the same advisors with a post conference portfolio to highlight and discuss what they learned. You might go to a conference and find yourself knowing, “I want to do this for the rest of my life.” It might truly be love at first sight and represent the beginning of a meaningful life’s work. Hopefully there is time to determine that you weren’t meant to be together before you tie the knot with the Ca RMS match.
I agree with the conclusions made by Brent Thoma, Chris Bond and Ken Milne who have already reviewed the meeting here, here and here.From what I have seen, many of my female classmates in a long-term relationship or in a marriage have found their significant other before medical school.Long-term relationships and marriages that are formed during medical school do happen, but they are comparatively rarer.I am absolutely convinced that quite a few of my female classmates will not find a significant other — married only to their jobs.There is nothing wrong with being single and being dedicated to your job. Out of good conscience and the desire not to see any life ruined by medicine, I write this to help women make the most informed choice — one which will impact them for the rest of their lives.But if they do want to get married (which most girls do want), it is actually quite sad.
I’m writing this not to discourage women from becoming doctors.
I couldn’t find any evidence directly related to medical students attending conferences but there are some interesting articles from other fields.
“Never Too Soon: Music Ed Students at Professional Conferences” outlines some of the benefits of education students attending academic conferences.
Even if the female doctor was willing to forgo hypergamy and marry down, she may have to try very hard to finding someone.
Many guys do not want their girls to make more money than them.
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.
