    Husbands with wife as student?

    Advertisements



    How many husbands follow their wives to medical school?

    This is my plan. I am ready for a change of career anyway. I received my MBA last year and it has not been worth the paper it was printed on. I will be Mr. Mom to our twin boys (they will be 5 when she matriculates sep. 04 to AUC) and then I will probably pursue my PhD and become a professor once she has started practicing medicine.

    Am I crazy?

    I saw 2 husbands in MUA (Nevis). Both have kids. One just left because the wife has finished the Basic Science. Aother one is still on the island. There could be more.

    Mr. Mom

    I have friends here at Saba who are doing just that. The wife is a Med student and the husband takes care of their child. He is very active in the SOS (Significant Others of Saba) and is also pursuing a degree online. They seem very happy with their situation.

    I think it certainly depends on the individuals involved, but it seems very doable to follow your wife to Med school.

    Best of Luck to Us All!

    My husband's coming with me

    My husband and I are planning to do just that. It will probably be another year before I apply, but we have a 1 year old and he'll be Mr. Mom. I admire you for doing this to help out your wife!! I tell my husband everyday I'm doing the easy part by going to Med school being a stay at home parent is a tough job!

    I've met about 2 or 3 at AUC so far(too bad my brain is reserved for anatomy or I would remember their names). It's not as crazy as you think.

    Good luck! See you in Sept 04! (that's if I don't fail Anatomy)
    Finally beat Super Mario Bros within 7 mins.

    becoming a professor

    Same here. I worked fulltime while my wife was in med school and have returned to school during her residency. I start grad school in the fall, so you are not alone. -ant

    MBA

    I know the feeling. I also am finishing the MBA. No one can get good jobs with that thing now days. Too many people have one. I did learn a lot though. I'm applying to AUC, so hopefully I'll have someone to discuss stocks with if I get in. My wife would be accompanying me if accepted.

    Wow

    You are all pretty awesome! And I mean it. It is hard to watch your kids all day long. I feel for my wife, she will be watching my two wonderful boys (by then 6 and 4 1/2) starting September of 04 as I begin medical school at AUC. but the good thing is is that our kids school is inside the medical school so we can see them whenever we want during the day.
    At the end of the day do I really have to go to the beach with my children and frolic in the water during sunset? Please tell me it isn't so. (Sarcasm intended) I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    All you dad's keep up the good work and you mom's too. It is well worth it -- your journey.

    I'll tell you

    Rossdoc to be, I'll tell you that if you have an MBA and a MD you are setting yourself up for a prestigious and well paying administrative position if that is what you want. NOCALL!!!!!!!! $250,000 / year to start. Massive perks. And the power of influence (I hoope it is the power to influence good patient care).
    Good Luck, Sounds great. :P

    What they said

    Just wanted to add to the list. I will be attending Saba in Jan, and my husband will be following me to the island. He's not sure what he's going to do with all of his free time yet, but he's looking forward to a long break from the 8:00-5:00. Don't worry, you're not alone!
