I am a big fan of doc marriages. I love what I do and love being able to share those stories with an understanding audience. I also find intelligence to be highly attractive. While it’s not a firm requirement, I would love to date another physician.
I am starting as an attending in a teaching hospital / med school. My previous relationships with other docs were results of online dating as I had a personal policy of not wanting to connect with people in the same hospital.
Now I am in a smaller town, just wondering how does meddit handle this type of situation? Now that I am a teaching faculty, I definitely do not want to make any sort of romantic move on anyone that I am directly in charge of. But what about other young attendings? What about residents from other services? What’s in general, the sensible rule for this?
For example, you see an attractive resident/attending from a different department (or another attending from your own department), how would you go about to ask them out? Can you get into trouble if you are very polite about inviting them out for a coffee/drink and if they decline you definitively drop the matter?
