Are there any women here that are in med school/residency & that have managed to successfully raise good kids without missing out on too much quality time? When is the best time to get married? When is the best time to have kids? Basically, my question is to women med students with families: How do you do it (without going insane)? I suppose I'm a traditional type of girl and would like to have ample time to spend with my kids/husband, so I'm wondering how to accomplish this while still going through med school/residency. I know this was discussed in an earlier thread, however, most of the responses were from Spouses of medical students rather than medical students themselves. In any case, any advice/encouraging stories are welcome. Thanks! PS: No, at this point in time I am neither married, nor do I have kids. I'm just wondering about the plan of action, so to speak.
