I'm excited to start my medical training this coming August, but I will be coming from Ontario, with a significant other who has major concerns about our relationship. He is aiming to finish his graduate studies by this summer, but depending on his supervisor, he is unsure exactly when he will be done. This means that we will have to do long distance for at least a couple of months, which he has said since we started dating that he does not think he can handle a long distance relationship - fair enough. On top of that, he is also worried about the time commitment for medical school, and I will have no time for him. We have discussed the possibility of him moving out to BC with me, but understandably, he is concerned that he may be unhappy living there, as his whole life is here in Ontario. It has always been his dream to work and settle down in Toronto. With his field especially, he thinks that he is more likely to be able to build a successful career in Toronto. Moving out to BC with me would mean that he is sacrificing his dream for my dream - this is what he told me. This would be a huge burden for me to carry. Anyway, sorry for spewing out all my personal problems out here, but the question I have is, does UBC provide any support/have any support groups for spouses/partners...etc.? I can't seem to find any information regarding that, so I'm not very hopeful, but I thought I should ask anyways. I have read that a lot of medical schools generally have support groups or resources for spouses and partners of medical students. If UBC offers something like this, I can see how this can potentially help with the situation that I am in right now. Thanks a bunch!
Hello, I'm looking for someone to study for the MCAT with in Montreal. In my experience, studying with a like-minded person helps both parties stay motivated and on track. I have just began studying, my test date is August 20th. Thanks!
Hey I'm looking for a dedicated partner to prep for MMI. Ideally I'd like to meet on a regular basis/schedule over Skype and if possible we could also meet in person depending on where you live. WRT the type of prepping, it would be a general strategy for how to approach specific types of questions (ex; organization, etc.), practicing questions on each other, and providing constructive feedback. If you are interested please post or PM me. Good luck to all prepping for interviews. EDIT: Hey I just wanted say that I am no longer looking for a partner. Thanks.
