I am a twenty-seven-year-old who is applying to medical school next year. I would start in Fall of 2013. By the time I start medical school I will be twenty-nine and my partner will be thirty-seven. We will most likely be in a new city far from family and friends, and our main income will be from school loans and scholarships.
Here’s our problem: we really want to have children. Have any of you successfully raised a family and completed your MD? — MJ
Have any of you been enrolled in demanding academic programs while beginning your family? What was your experience like?
