Episode 8 | Valentine’s Special Pt. 2: Being a Parent in Medical School and Residency

Listen here!

Welcome to Part 2 of our Valentine’s Day Special!  Here we explore what it’s like to be a parent while attending medical school and residency. For insight into this topic, we have brought in two “physicians in training” who have a three year old daughter and another baby on the way. We sure learned a lot from our incredibly talented and dedicated guests, and know you will too!

Genevieve is a Chicagoland native who is now a second year medical student at Loyola’s Stritch School of Medicine. Before entering medical school she spent 5 years dancing with Ballet Nebraska (now American Midwest Ballet) and Ballet Vero Beach, where she performed many soloist and principal roles including the Black Swan and Sugar Plum Fairy. She currently teaches ballet and pointe at Maywood Fine Arts in Maywood, IL.

Daniel Parecki is a second year family medicine resident at West Suburban. He has a passion for functional medicine and health policy, often described as a “big picture” guy. He enjoys cooking, classical music, and has performed professionally with the chorus of Opera Omaha. Daniel and Genevieve live in Chicago with their daughter and cat.
