Dating during residency forum

So here you go, enjoy: Page us if you really want our attention. We are either presenting a patient on rounds, sitting in a lecture, or pretending to listen to a patient.

Very often, textswill not be checked or replied to in a timely fashion. It is much easier to read a page at the hospital because it appears to be work-related! Most likely, our response time will be much better on the pager because while we are not a slave to you or our phones, the pager is our ball-and-chain. The caveat is that some resident physicians do not like using their pagers for non-hospital communication. We adore it, worship it, love it, and crave it.

Since our second year of medical school, we have had a yearning for it. It is precious to us. If we have the chance to be uninteractive for more than 10 minutes, then we will invariably close our eyes and drift into REM sleep. What we want is uninterrupted, un-anxious, fulfilling, undeprived sleep. So please do not wake us up early on days we can sleep in.

Most of us only get sick during residency because we do not sleep enough. We love to ask questions. Please ask us questions too! We have evolved to learn, memorize, analyze, and think critically extremely quickly. If it is rude to you that we whip out our cell phones to wikipedia every building or foreign food or new drug being advertised, consider us sorry—but not really. Our jobs require us to keep on learning, so it is only natural we apply the inquisitive approach to whatever seems interesting to us.

Our brains were beaten to a pulp to learn each minute, relevant and irrelevant detail so that we could somehow catalogue those tidbits into a useful, accessible database.

It is our way of interactive learning. So, broaden our horizons by teaching us something. We generally like teaching you too. Not sticking to your diet plan? We can usually tell. We love to believe you, but if what you says seems fishy, we will inadvertently turn to objective data to corroborate your story.

We see enough pathologic liars at work. We are not medication or medical imaging vending machines. Let us know if you have been in an ER waiting room for hours. We want to help you, but generally, we cannot give you stuff other than medical advice that is better than WebMD.

If we can help you, we will offer to. It is an ethical issue. Color us cynical, but we still have feelings.

The things we hear, the diseases we see, the people we touch, the emotional burden we bear, the hours we work, and the medical responsibility we have—those are things you will never experience.

Most of us have healthily coped with the stresses and situations by becoming a bit cynical and numb.

For me, when I hit rock rock bottom, I just need to spend lots ofalone time with my dog on my bed. We would love some—homecooked, deli, leftovers from a restaurant. When we sip that Starbucks coffee cup at work, it is a pleasant reminder to us that we are still somewhat normal human beings in touch with the outside world. Remember, jellos and saltine crackers are not dinner. We have it worse.
