Karissa’s Answer

Maintaing relationships is the hardest part. You have years of intensive schooling, then a residency in Surgery and finally a fellowship. You have no time for dating or starting or keep a relationship going. I left my husband in medical school because he was never around. Don't put another person through this.

Karissa recommends the following next steps:

Plan out how long your schooling will take
Disclose your career plan to all romantic partners
