Name change - professional vs. personal?
Anyone here use their maiden name professionally, and their husband's name socially? How did you manage this?
I'm halfway through medical school and am obviously registered at my school under my maiden name. All my official standardized test scores (Step 1) are in my name as well. I'd like to practice under my maiden name if I can, and know several doctors who do this. BUT -- all of them got married during or after their residency, when they were already MDs!
I'm not sure if it would be too complicated to wait until I finish medical school and THEN change my name, so that my MD will be in my maiden name, or if this will just be too complicated and I need to decide once and for all if I'm going to keep or change my name.
Has anyone been in a similar situation? Any suggestions?
