Lives of Doctor Wives: New Feature!!!

New Feature!!!

Hello Ladies!
Some of our wonderful practicing physician's wives have volunteered to host a new feature for us! Survivor Saturdays!!!!

On Saturdays, they will either be answering a question that you submitted or they will be posting some important topic of interest that they think we could all grow from knowing more about! Please give them all a round of applause for volunteering to do this and helping us out by sharing important information that they may have learned the hard way.

Our three hostesses so far are Amanda, wife of an OB/GYN, Jennifer, spouse to a Pediatric Opthalmologist, and Kathi, whose husband specialized in Med/Ped but is working now as a health care consultant. Thank you ladies for sharing your knowledge!

To kick off our new feature, Kathi will be posting this weekend about what she and her husband learned about the interview process and what he looks at every time a new candidate comes through the door. It should be very informative! Thanks Kathi!

Please post your questions for the ladies in the comment section for this feed so they will always know where to look for them. I really hope everyone enjoys Survivor Saturdays, I know I am really looking forward to them sharing their insight!

I know this is kind of vague, but what is the process from going from residency to practicing?

I am looking forward to hearing about the interview aspect this weekend, but what about finding places to work/interview, licensing, what to expect at your first day at the new place, and all that kind of stuff.

I hope you have some info on this important transition

Alexandra, after Jennifer, Kathi, and I confer, I think we'll have a lot to say about the transition from residency to practicing. I know I will! ;)

Thank so much for doing this for us, ladies! I'm excited!

My question is pretty vague too. It is lovely to see people on the other side of this experience and know that it is possible to make it through intact. What do you ladies say when friends or family say they want to go to medical school? I have a hard time finding a balance between telling them how incredibly tough it is and telling them how incredibly worth it is. What do you say and how much it too much to say?
