Aubyn, Some Hope. When I took a job as a residency coordinator in graduate medical education at a local community hospital, I made myself a promise: I will not date a resident. I held out for four years. The residents and I were the same age: they were smart and engaged; I was social and insightful, just far enough inside their world to understand it, but far enough outside not to be consumed by it. Soon some of them became dear friends. My now-partner, Evan, was one of the quiet ones. He was sloshed to the gills that night, but funny and clever and open. We talked, pressed against the sticky bar, and he spent the next week haunting my office. That was two years ago. That was before I spent two years in the intimate company of a proverbial soldier on the front lines.
Family Medicine Resident
Dating in medical school is not easy. During the first two years, you are constantly studying and making sure you are passing and hopefully acing! Medical school is not only time-consuming; it is mind-consuming. I especially value my time and absolutely hate wasting time. I also frequently think because I am a medical student, my time is more valuable than others, especially those without demanding jobs.
With that being said, I often rely on texting and other forms of electronic communication to stay up to date with my significant other.
Over the past few months, I’ve started to see an internal medicine resident. I’m a lawyer, I don’t really know much about residency, other than that it is demanding.
I also greet the now familiar pit in my stomach. It comes from the tension between our crucial role as physicians and the risk our job poses to our loved ones and ourselves. It also comes from my sense that my relative lack of clinical decision-making power and experience constrain my ability to contribute. Make no mistake: I am not complaining, nor do I regret my career decisions. But the true nature of our profession, the risks it entails in the face of a global pandemic, has slapped me in the face, and I am trying to adapt to the impact of the hit.
Not long into my shift, I get a call about a patient who feels a sudden, powerful urge to push, unable to stand the pressure in her pelvis. I quickly get to her room, pull on a pair of gloves, and move the delivery cart into place. Thirty seconds later, we celebrate our first birthday party of the shift. The room is less crowded than usual given new limits on visitors, but the cheers are no less ecstatic.
Then the patient gives out a small cough, turning her head toward me, and I feel incredibly exposed.

A community-based residency affiliated with UC Davis School of Medicine, our training program has roots dating back to the ‘s, when general practice.
Research suggests residents rely on family and friends for support during their training. The authors used a constructivist grounded theory approach. In —, they conducted semistructured interviews with a purposive and theoretical sample of 16 Canadian residents from various specialties and training levels. Data analysis occurred concurrently with data collection, allowing authors to use a constant comparative approach to explore emergent themes.
Transcripts were coded; codes were organized into categories and then themes to develop a substantive theory. Residents perceived their relationships to be influenced by their evolving professional identity: Although personal relationships were important, being a doctor superseded them. Participants suggested they were forced to adapt their personal relationships, which resulted in the evolution of a hierarchy of relationships that was reinforced by the work—life imbalance imposed by their training.
Participants applied coping mechanisms to manage the conflict arising from the adaptation and protect their relationships. To minimize the effects of identity dissonance, some gravitated toward relationships with others who shared their professional identity or sought social comparison as affirmation. Erosion of personal relationships could affect resident wellness and lead to burnout.
