Good luck with that one– from one of many Moms here who tried and found out it is really not an option. It appears that you have to be a really solid candidate to get something like this with best of the grades and scores etc. It is kinda’ weird because most Moms are not gunners for obvious reasons.
I don’t know about that…you can have crazy high scores and great credentials and not be a toxic gunner. I do know a ton of Moms who are incredibly accomplished and did very very well in medical school. Several of the ladies on this board that I know in the non-internet world are exactly who I am thinking of when I say that. I think it is hard to label. That said, I don’t know anyone who has ever done a part-time residency.
There are always exceptions to the rule- a lot also depeds on when the mom had the child/children. Most of my classmates got pregnant in 3rd yr while only three of us had small children going in. Some also had a stay-at-home dad, some did not. Anyhow, most moms opted for less demanding fields. Again, there are always excpetions ike you, southernmd who seems to be pretty smart and nice 🙂
🙂 Well thank you. I’ll claim the nice for sure (every other Tuesdays and on non night float weeks. Ha)! LOL.
I like to make sure our posters know we have very smart Moms out there! I do think we need more moms with info on shared residencies. I’ve seen this on Frieda, but I have never seen anyone actually do one.
