“My boyfriend is a medical student” – Unknown

One thing that never ceases to amaze me in medical school is the quality of my friends. Simply put, they’re fascinating individuals with diverse pasts and laurels galore. They’re funny, they’re smart and they’re oddly attractive. No, no, I don’t mean they look odd or that they’re only attractive to odd folk. I just mean that a disproportionate number of people in med school are head-turningly.  Believe me it’s really easy to feel insecure around these beautiful boffins.

While some of my friends are in a stable relationship, a fairly large number are single with very few or no prospects in the foreseeable future. You might be thinking it is easy for medical students to find people to date. Well, it is and it isn’t! Easy because even before they finish their degree course they seems to have a sparkling future. It isn’t easy on the other hand because they usually are always busy engaging in classwork, studies or hospitals and they might not have enough time for you and also to be honest they usually sound boring with all their technical terms!

A few months ago a medical student friend told me parents don’t like their daughters to date medical students and even to have a son-in-law who is a doctor. I could not reason as to why parents feel this way I found it hard to believe, but it seems true because if having work-life balance is important to them, then it is so. But if money or wealth is all they want for their daughters, I wondered in light of the deepening primary care physician shortage. I want to ask them: “Do they think a stack of money can take care of their daughters in sickness?”  


Big shout-out goes to all the non-medical student girls who date a medical student in spite of all the difficulties!

For those in a dilemma whether or not to date one of us: Consider these reasons to date a doctor-in-training when choosing a person to date. Your friends will be jealous when they see the benefits you reap. Because dating a medical student definitely has some major benefits. Let’s look at a few of the reasons to date a doctor-in-training:

1. They know how you feel or at least pretend to!!
2. They always have a strange new story to tell- They know what you want to hear and say it!!
3. They can stay up all night if you want them to.
4. They’re smart and always trying to dress nice- They went through a lot of schooling to get where they’re at. They had to take sciences and maths that would make the average head spin!
5. Can’t gross them out- They have seen the worst of the worst. Your funky skin rash isn’t going to send them running for the hills. With the gross things they deal with every day, it is very hard to surprise them.
6. They listen well- They are trained to listen very attentively to what you have to say and to process what you are telling them. Dating a female medical student will boost this benefit even more because of a female’s natural caring and attentive nature.
7. They’re fixers- They are trained to fix you. Their job is to problem solve and get everything working back to normal.
8. They’re committed- All of the schooling, studying, training and practicing took a lot of effort and dedication to complete. Dating them has many pros and this is a big one.
9. They’re Dependable- They are often on-call and have to be available at any hour of the day. You can rest assured that your doctor will be there for you any time you need them!
10. Status- Love should have nothing to do with titles or salaries, but doctors do come with a prestigious status. Doctors-in-training are highly respected in society and dating one puts you right alongside of them.
