Lives of Doctor Wives: Hello from Ginny

Hello from Ginny

I'm not sure why it has taken me so long to post on this site, but alas I am here! My name is Ginny and my husband Kody is a MSIII at OSU in Tulsa. He is currently on rotations and has loved every minute of it. Kody has wanted to be a doctor since he was five years old and always thought he would go into pediatrics until he got accepted to school. He started throwing around the idea of orthopedic surgery after shadowing some surgeons in college. He loved his surgery and OB/GYN (OB surgery...GYN not so much) rotations. This month was his first orthopedic rotation and he has 100% fallen in love with bones. :) Now we are on a mission to find a great program and God willing get accepted.

We met in college at Oklahoma Christian. Got married, worked, got accepted to school and moved to Tulsa. We have a dog and she is our baby. I work full time as a media buyer at a fabulous Tulsa casino. I love my job and I love working. Neither one of us is ready to start a family so right now it is just us and the dog! I have had a great experience so far through medical school. I prepared myself for the worst and it has turned out to be pretty great. I think the key is to make sure you have your own life. Always have your life together, but have your own as well! We all know we'll spend a lot of time without our spouses over our lifetime so this is as good of time as any to learn to be content while they are away. I am OSU's SAA president. I have really enjoyed getting to know all the first year student spouses. Being involved in SAA over the past few years has been a tremendous blessing and has helped prepare me for what lies ahead. I'm excited to get to know all of you!

I have been VERY pleased with E's program. It is definitely one of the more "family friendly" ortho programs out there. The chair and PD really care about their residents. If you guys end up interested in the program here, I'd be glad to fill you in. I coordinate the "meet and greet" for the interviewees spouses/SOs.

Yes, Melisa, Ginny is our fearless leader and she's doing a GREAT job! Big shoes to fill for whoever is the next one!

Anyway, welcome Ginny! I agree with you that I prepared myself for the worst and it has been slightly better, at times, than my expectations... :) (Thus FAR!)

Davita - I would LOVE to hear more about your experience. We are still trying to nail down what programs he is going to rotate at for the rest of his electives. That seems to be a big challenge right now because there are so many. Is your hubby a MD or DO? KOdy will be a DO. He took USMLE so he may look at MD programs, but with ortho being so competitive we'll probably stick do DO. We know all the basics like salary, vacation days, call, etc (mainly because I am a research freak and have a pretty sweet spreadsheet detailing all of them!), but of course we have no idea what the attendings and residents are like, if they are family friendly or what the areas would be like to live in. Those are the big question marks at this point. Any advice on programs is greatly appreciated!

Ginny,
My husband is M.D. I am pretty sure that he works with some of residents from the KC D.O. ortho program when he is at Children's. His program has had a few D.O. students do aways with them. If you have any questions about living here, feel free to ask. We've been here a only a couple of years, but E's cousin's wife grew up here.
