Has anyone out there taken a year off between med school and residency to have a baby? Anyone considered this, and if you have, any advice on the matter? Are there any residency programs that I could match into as a fourth year, then defer a year? I am about to be MS4 in June, and have a medical problem (gyne). My doc wants me to have some operations, then try try try for a baby ASAP to increase my chances. Any thoughts??? I haven't decided on a specialty yet- considering psych, pathology, or radiology. Anything is helpful ladies.
