It was 1:00 in a phone call on Sunday afternoon, and wait patiently for the official entrance of the room. We are four strangers almost perfect, but we have one thing in common: our challenge of keeping in touch. Is it really such a common medical profession, or are they the same people who brought us into the field? We recognize the difficulty of maintaining existing relationships and initiating new ones.

As we solve our medical training, of course we give a lot of our own lives. We stayed in a large part of the first 20 years of the social life of the School of Medicine. Over the years, we’ve missed weddings, baby showers, birthdays and funerals. In everyday life, we have spent so many hours that we spend time with friends and loved ones at break. Although we do not act, we are tired or exercise efforts. While we are physically, it is not the people who matter most actually exist.

That night, we shared stories of important people in our lives that we lost, and wondered if this would happen if we had chosen a different field. Can we really all people at all times? Something has to give, and our agenda is out of our control, it is usually related to the shelf. The irony is that we maintain this relationship throughout the year by pressing education about water. But a stronger relationship with the patient is less than a personal relationship.

I once saw an article about this quote: “Show me the doctor, whose wife is happy, and I’ll show you a man who neglects his practice.” It may be difficult, but here are some simple tips I learned to navigate In this important relation:

1. Prioritize relationships. Even if you are not always a priority, and provide a full time and energy, it is important to ensure that spouses and family / friends understand how important they are to their small gestures, a concise or greeting cards or just a word to show the How much you concerned.

2. Do not tell people they do not understand (although it may seem like it sometimes). While it is true that no one really comes off of shoe drugs, you can try our best to explain to your loved ones the daily events and emotional lability (especially fatigue or stress) which can sometimes be followed by a field. Someone told me that they do not understand, it creates a relationship between the larger dispute, and he / she can stop trying to understand.

3. Be aware that the exercise is temporary. Although the drug has never been the “easy” to maintain relationship, and different challenges when you work your way up the ladder, you have more control over your life is complete after training.

4. Be honest and communicate effectively. Use the tools you’ve learned how to communicate effectively with patients to your friends and family. If you do not directly tell what happens at work or pressures you face, how do they know? And how do they know how to help (see # 2 as well)?

5. Cutting was amazing to strengthen the relationship. While your friends are medicine, it can still be difficult to maintain this relationship. There was a time when my friend lives in another state that works at night, so when you have free time to work, I can talk to him / her (when the rest of the world is sleeping). Oman as a vampire and family friends who can not, at night, using the docking to chat with friends on the phone. You may not take 30 minutes to talk, but still five minutes from time to time can help you maintain important relationships.

Years of rigorous training

You may ask, “If we can not meet the basic needs of your own, how can we meet other people,” It may be difficult, but maintaining a strong relationship with drugs outside making contact with the patient would be best if we detach and integrate more Deep for the individual. And with the support of friends, family and loved ones allows us to survive and even thrive in the years of rigorous training
