Figuring Out A Long Distance Relationship in Med School
I did a search and couldn’t find much on this topic if somebody wants to direct me to a previous thread on this topic, feel free. For those of you in medical school: how does medical school affect your relationship with your significant other? I would be interested to hear replies from people who are married, engaged, dating, whatever. My problem is that I may be attending Dal this fall, but my boyfriend just accepted an engineering job in BC for a minimum of two years.
So, any experiences from people who are in long-distance relationships while in med would also be appreciated.
I knew this was going to be a particularly difficult situation, because my boyfriend and I had just begun dating a month or so before despite being.
Following up on our previous post, we thought that it would be a good idea to get a little bit of background information on who exactly we are. Courtney : We got married when I was 22 and Angelo was Naturally we have LOADS of doubters, people telling us not to do it, that we were making a mistake and all of that jazz.
But honestly, getting married young was one of the best things! Not only do we get to grow old together, but we also get to grow up together. Especially in Italy, a lot of people quite literally refuse to acknowledge that Angelo is my husband, they call him my boyfriend… whatever. It was one of the best decisions I will ever make. It seemed illogical to many at the time, me being a student and Courtney not having a job yet, but sometimes you have to have faith.
Being married has made my time here feel like a life not just like I am stuck in limbo until I graduate.
I am hoping someone can offer some perspective to shed some light on this or help me view the situation in a different way. My fiance and I just celebrated our 5 year anniversary and lived together for most of that time. He is kind, emotionally available, and thoughtful. Until he started medical school this week. I have never doubted our relationship, but this one is throwing me for a loop.

Dear all, I recently received a question from a blog reader about how Irene and I maintain a long distance relationship while we are both in school. I agree. There definitely have been difficult or frustrating times, but Irene and I love each other, trust each other, and work hard in keeping each other happy, even when we are both busy in school, and across the ocean from each other.
We accept that there will be challenges, but we both know we are building a greater future together and that a few years of being apart is nothing compared to a lifetime together afterwards. I end my day everyday with Irene. Sometimes during the school semester, I would even find a less-busy weekend to go visit Irene, like one of the weekends after block exams.
When Irene came to visit me, she met many of my friends and professors here at AUC. And even though she is currently far away, she still keeps in contact with many of them, and feels involved when I talk about my friends because she has met them before. Those friendship connections shorten the distance between our two lives. I have also met and kept in contact with her friends. I think in many ways, Irene and I have strengthened our relationship over the semesters during this long-distance experience.
We recently just got engaged. Congratulations on your engagement!
How I Turned My Long Distance Relationship Into a Positive Experience
I met a really great guy. We grew up in the same town and somehow never met. He is now in med school about an hour away. We had an amazing first date. And the weekend after I will be out of town.

This week I said goodbye to my boyfriend of over a year. Without much introduction, here are my reflections on love in medical school. During orientation week, we did an exercise arranging cards with values on them. We had to select and rank our top My top three included health, having a meaningful life, and love. At the time and until quite recently — if I am being completely honest — I probably held love above all else.
I took pride in my ability to balance a long-distance relationship with the demands of school. Nearly every weekend included trips to the airport, whether flying myself or picking up my boyfriend on a Friday evening and dropping him off on Sunday. I managed to study, cook, exercise, and enjoy his company each weekend. Medical school was part of the routine Monday through Friday, but no more central to it than his finance career.
Likewise, as with work colleagues and friends, I distanced my social life from that of my medical school peers.

So much depends on the wants and needs of the individual people! I asked my boyfriend his input on this topic, too! We both agreed that there are a few key things that make our relationship work. The first is that our work ethics and lifestyles are very similar. Aka — we are both workaholics. We are usually so busy each day that neither of us is left just sitting around wishing the other person could be there. Usually just texts and a quick phone call before bed is all we have time for during the week.
If one of us worked without other projects there would probably be more frustration. He is so willing to learn all about med school, which means so much to me. He also listens to me vent or nerd-out about school, even though most of what I tell him grosses him out. The different specialty options I have to choose from could mean very different lifestyles and career paths, but he just wants me to be happy.
He is working on a career change, and watching him pursue it makes me so proud. He will likely be moving once or twice for his career change, and I of course will go through The Match process next year. We will make decisions together when the time comes.

Falling in Love… with Medical School
When I started med school in the fall of last year, a lot of things were daunting to me: adapting to the rigor of med school, building a new community here, and starting a long distance relationship LDR. I knew this was going to be a particularly difficult situation, because my boyfriend and I had just begun dating a month or so before despite being friends for half a year. It would be a different story if we had been together for several years and then began long distance, but we were just beginning a new relationship.
However, we both agreed we would try it out, and I am not one to conceal the truth.

A year ago she moved away to further schooling in the medical field. My work makes it completely unfeasible to move in the short term. The kicker is that I know she is interested in this specialty for reasons outside of love for it. I want to spend my life with her.

I feel like her choosing the additional long distance would be essentially choosing her career over love and family.

Mar 22, – My two cents on figuring out a long distance relationship in med school, and the things my boyfriend and I have agreed make ours work so well!
Most people talk about college like starting a completely brand new life, with new experiences and new people. Sometimes, those in relationships go to the same college together, pick different colleges and split up, or pick different colleges and try a long distance relationship. Despite the amount of negative comments from friends like, “good luck with that,” and “wow, statistics are against you!
We knew all along we’d end up at different colleges. I knew I wanted to go to Queen’s University and he knew he wanted to do a direct-entry medical program in Ireland. That’s right, we’re across seas. While I was very nervous and at first, pretty distressed about starting a long-distance relationship, I was hopeful that if we were meant to be like we always thought we were, that it would work out.
We’re just about finished with our second year of long distance and recently celebrated our three year anniversary! Starting first year was tricky and I was anxious about navigating all the new people and experiences I’d face. If my boyfriend and I went to school together, neither of us would have had this experience to the fullest. Since we both had these experiences completely independently, we were able to spend a lot of time catering to new friendships and having a good time with new people.
And now, we have great stories to tell each other.
