Lives of Doctor Wives: 1 Confirmed; 1 Still Awaiting Response

1 Confirmed; 1 Still Awaiting Response

R got his July away rotation! It's his first choice of elective and time period for a program that I hear is very difficult/practically impossible to get into for residency unless you rotate there. So, while this by no means means that he'll match there, this was an important part of the equation.

So... Any tips for him or me? I know he'll need to get to know a lot of people and be well liked. Anything more specific?
Also, I will not be going with him; I have a job and a life here, after all! I'm not really worried about living without him here. I have friends coming in, finals happening, general enjoy-New-York-in-the-summer plans, so I'll be plenty busy. However, I do want to visit him for an extended weekend. I don't plan on getting to hang out with him too much as he will be busy networking while scrubbing in on surgeries, but beyond that, I'm not sure what to expect.

Yay! :)

...Now we just have to hear back about the one he's hoping to do for August...

Awesome! May I ask where? This is ortho right? I am also curious how they told him - email or letter? We have THREE applications out and no responses yet ... I am starting to get nervous but I know it is still early (one of the programs doesn't even review programs until after memorial day. Congrats to your husband!

Thanks! I'm not really comfortable saying online, but I'll send you an email (I see there's a link to do so on your blog...)

Anyway, I will say that we were contacted via email, and the program told us that that's how we'd be contacted. They started reviewing May 1. The one we haven't heard from began reviewing May 15.

I imagine part of the reason we found out when we did was because he wanted a July rotation.

One of our friends here applied to a bunch of West Coast programs and has already heard from a number of them. Very nerve-wracking when we hadn't heard from any, so I know how you feel!
