Tips dating medical resident Clean chat cam
I want to be by Richard’s side and support him through residency, because god knows it’s tiring, back-breaking work that is just plain shitty. He often tells me how happy he is to return to a clean home, warm meal, and me in the doorway–and I think that makes residency all the more bearable for him. If we truly love someone, we have to make sacrifices. Most nurses have seen the Grey’s Anatomy episode where Rose, the nurse, and Derek, the dreamy surgeon, take their relationship to the next level. Nurses rarely sneak off to on-call rooms in the middle of a shift.You Still Have to Go to the Doctor The nice part about dating a doctor is, well, always having a doctor around.With healthcare being so dreadfully expensive in the United States, it’s great to have Richard nearby and give me the ‘yes’ or ‘no’ in regard to whether I really need to go to the doctor’s office.Basically, this means I never see him—and when I do, he’s half asleep.
Before the cap in 2003, residents sometimes worked 136 hours per week. With moonlighting included, Richard sometimes works up to 100 hours per week.Salaries for doctors are declining, with Richard telling me that some nurses now make more than the lowest paid medical specialty – pediatrics.So no, dating a doctor does not equal abundant wealth.I couldn’t believe that these women went out of their way to study in the medicine library (the other end of campus) for the blind chance that, perhaps, a med student might take notice of them. The average debt of a med school graduate is about 160,000 USD, which normally takes up to 30 years to pay off and consequentially amounts to around 400,000 USD of total debt with accrued interest added in. While doctors start off with 6 figures right off the bat, they also have 6 figures of debt under their belt.
At the time, I never imagined I would someday date a doctor. Doctors may make more than your average Joe, but with the debt factored in it’s definitely not an easy or quick path to riches.
I remember being at some random party in university, holding a beer and looking at the throngs of people around me who were drunk and stumbling. Everyone Thinks You’re Rich Oh, if only I had a dollar every time someone said this to me.
