Lives of Doctor Wives: Married to an MSIII

Married to an MSIII

Like all of you ladies, I'm in love with a doctor-in-training/MD. My name is Heather, and I'm married to my high school sweetheart. Mark and I have been together more than eight years, braved a long-distance relationship for over 5 years, and have been married for two and a half years. We are proud puppy parents of Jinx and Ceazer...our adorable, trouble making duo. I currently work as a research coordinator at university.

Mark took Step I last week, and starts his first rotation as an MSIII in May. He's wanted to be a doctor and save lives for as long as I've known him, and I honestly can't imagine him doing anything else. Mark is in a rural medical program, which means after completing MSI and MSII in the city, we've moved to a smaller town for MSIII and MSIV.

I was thrilled when I stumbled upon this site a few weeks ago. As the wife of a medical student adjusting to a new town, I was looking to connect with women who have been there, done that, and survived. Thanks to everyone for sharing their experiences!

Welcome! I bet he's glad Step 1 is over! :)

Is he involved in the National Health Service Corps at all? I started to look that up first year when R was floating the idea of the military as a way to pay for med school. It's a cool program but not for what R wants to do. He's just going the loan route.

Welcome! My hubby will be taking step 1 in a few more weeks, any suggestions on how to survive it? How small is the new town you're in?

MW, the National Health Service Corps is definitely on our list of things to look into when the time comes.

Tasha, I did a lot of reading and tried to keep myself busy with projects around the house. Hang in there!
