My mission

My wife and I before medical school started

My wife and I in Utah

Hey everybody this is my first voyage into the world of blogging. Pretty excited and I usually don’t shut up, so please tell me when to stop. If you go to my about page you will see that I am an MSU grad and a husband. I have been married for close to a year now and have had some unique experiences in my first year of marriage. The reason I say that is because I have had the opportunity to watch my wife make her way through the rigors of medical school. I have been there for that anatomy class and that first test. I have seen the dedication and time consuming hours it takes just to get by. I have become a dummy and a walking experiment for my wife and her med school classmates. I understand the stress and pressure that students are constantly under and I am constantly amazed by my wife’s work ethic, dedication, and passion for what she does. So here is the mission of this blog….think of it as a journal. My goal is to reach out to anyone in the medical school community that is dating, engaged, married to, or otherwise related to a medical student and understands the challenges that are loved ones face. Use it as a place to vent, to ask question or seek support or just see how your experience compare to mine as a medical student spouse.  Hope I can entertain you a bit and if you want to connect with me further hit me up on twitter @philipgolas.

  1. I am Philip’s mom and the mother in law to a great girl that my son has chosen to be his wife for life. I am so proud of both of you. In your young lives you have already a great insight into doing things right. We are never to old to learn and expand ourselves. You are both dedicated to each other and making yourselves more interesting to each other and those who meet you. Onward and forward, you are amazing.

  2. Phil,
    How wonderful of you to share the ins and outs of the “real” world with us. I know you are totally dedicated to being a great husband and partner. Your outstanding attitude, and zest for life is so uplifting. Your energy could light up a ballroom.)))

  3. Hello Phil,

    I am a friend of your Mom’s living in the beautiful north woods. My husband is a retired E.R doctor. We were married between his second and third year of medical school. Steve went to Medical School at the University of Michigan, but we both received our bachelor degrees from MSU. What your have written in your blog brought back so many memories. Your support and devotion through these tough years are so valuable and important. The best of luck to both of you. The end result is worth it!

    • Thank you Gail. I appreciate the encouragement and I am sure there are many young couples who could take note of your relationship advice from you and your husband. Medical training can get crazy but I know hard work pays off! So you do you root for this weekend? MSU or U of M? Thank you for reading!

      • Hi Philip,
        Actually we rooted for MSU. As Steve reminded me, in his four years at UM, he never once set foot in the stadium. Tooo busy! I was soorry to see MSU lose!
