SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey All, I am in a bit of a complication about relationships and medical school. I am sure this has been asked before, but I don't know. I have a boyfriend that I have been with for 2 years. As fate may have it, we may be going to the same medical school. Now, my boyfriend is "concerned" at the fact that I will be (for lack of a better way to put it) a burden on his during medical school. He is afraid that he cannot have a serious relationship while studying to be a doctor. Now, my belief is that this is utter horse doo. I have seen a lot of people who are married with kids, attending medical school. Not only that, I only know 1 person who is currently going to medical school that does NOT have a boyfriend/girlfriend. Of course, I know that there are many other single med students, but I hear a lot about ones that have relationships. Now, my question is, how hard is it to keep a relationship going while currently studying medicine? I know this may be a stupid question, but is it possible to have a relationship while in medical school? Or are we just doomed? I personally think yes, and that he just has problems to deal with, but what do you all think? Do you have any advice?
