Sunday Special 19 – How to “residency-proof” your marriage (even if you’re out of residency) – Hannah Pye

Sunday Special 19 – My guest today is Hannah Pye.  Hannah is an emergency department nurse married to a military pediatrician.  She and her husband have been married for 11 years and have moved 7 times. So, they’ve had a decent amount of experience in managing expectations during the medical journey. She is the creator of our new online course, “Residency-Proof Your Marriage.”  As a follow up to our recent Marriage and Money, M.D. summit, I thought it would be good to hear the perspective of a physician spouse on how to make a marriage work throughout the course of a medical career with all its pressures and challenges.  Hannah is amazing, and I think you’ll really enjoy hearing her discussion today.

It’s time to Residency-Proof Your Marriage!

I’m excited to tell you about a new online course I’m launching called “Residency-Proof Your Marriage.”  I’ve seen way too many couples get divorced or see their relationships go sour during their medical career.  Medical training is an inherently divisive time, so you have to work to combat that! 

This online video course will coach you through setting expectations, communicating effectively, getting on the same page with finances, and keeping your relationship thriving during a difficult time.  Whether you’re in medical school, residency, or out in clinical practice, Residency-Proof Your Marriage is going to help you build a thriving medical marriage.  

This is a very inexpensive investment in your marriage.  A weekend marriage retreat will cost upwards of $1000 between food, registration, lodging, and vacation time.  This course is just a fraction of that cost and you can complete it on your own time!

The course is also eligible for CME credits, so you can use your employer’s CME funds to sign up.

Registration for the course is open NOW!
