As a couple matching into the same program, Hannah and I were a little nervous about what life would be like while being in the same program. I can confidently say that since the day we interviewed, we have felt nothing but welcomed and supported.
Despite moving amidst a pandemic and national social unrest, the program and current residents went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. Our intern class comes from all different parts of the country and world and have a truly varied background. Many of my co-interns actually couples-matched to the program or had a significant other already in a UW program. As a couple matching into the same program, Hannah and I were a little nervous about what life would be like while being in the same program. We wondered if it would be more a challenge for the program and if the challenges of our unique situation would make us look unfavorable. I can confidently say that since the day we interviewed, we have felt nothing but welcomed and supported. It was clear that the program did the best they could to help give us schedules that would be as conducive as possible to maintaining a happy relationship. In fact, we even found a way to have all our vacation weeks together!  I understand that our situation is fairly unique, however I feel very strongly that it represents the flexible, understanding, and caring nature of the UW pediatric program.
