Original Article: How Med Student Parents Make It Happen
Can you be a parent while you’re in medical school?
Kylie Miller and Issac Schwantes take a break from their fairly new clinical duties to let Gabe Conley and Erik Kneller know how it’s going working with actual patients. What unexpected things have they learned? Were their professors really correct when the said that arcane bit of information would actually be useful in the real world? Were their fears (whatever they were) realized? Would they rather grandma puke every time they broke wind, or have a shingles outbreak whenever they get a passing grade or better in medical school? Dave assures them: these are the questions listeners want answers to.
Listener Courtney, a 26-year-old mother of three wants to know if her med school dream is even possible. Obviously this is a two-part question since there are both moms and dads to consider, so we’ll have a mom on a future show to help. But first, Gabe Conley, Marissa Evers, Joyce “Spicy” Wahba, and Kaci McCleary invited 2004 CCOM grad Dr. Tom McNalley on the show to represent the dads. Tom was 39 with three kids of his own and a wife who was working towards her PhD when he entered med school. We’ll find out how they did it.
After that, Dave and the gang do a little introspection in the way that medical students often are asked to do: by taking personality tests and comparing their results.
