Step 1 of the medical boards (from a med school wife's perspective)

This is my blog, and I reserve the right to be lazy.

For the next three days, I'm going to link you to some of my posts from 2010. Step 1, the first part of the medical boards, is coming up and I know a lot of med students are starting to study. Wives of med students are starting to freak out about the excessive amounts of studying.

Y took Step 1 two years ago (before a lot of you found me), and I'll let you in on a little secret: it wasn't that bad. For me, at least. I'm pretty sure Y started going crazy. Here's the proof, in 3 parts:


  1. My husband is studying for... something. I am such a bad wife, I kind of stopped listening to what he's taking next! (Step 4? Is that a thing? I HAVE NO IDEA!) I figure they will be studying for SOMETHING for the next eighty million years, so I might as well just ignore it. :-)

  2. You hit the nail on the head! That post was hilarious! Although it's still just finals for us (he won't take the step 'till the fall) I am still sorta freaking out for my med-school husband..

    Anywho, so glad you found my blog, so I could find your blog.


  3. I am really excited to have discovered the blog of another med students wife! My husband will take the STEP1 this fall. And your posts are hilarious - I just read your "Part 1" post and was dying laughing!!! 1. The yoga moves are awesome. Those pics are too funny! 2. My husband will totally start banging on me with that little hammer at random times as well, it drives me bonkers! 3. Haha, your dog looks awesome in glasses! Such an intellectual pooch.
