They'll disappear for days at a time.
A med-student's exam schedule can be pretty intense. Between classes, labs, and study groups, you'll definitely learn that absence makes the heart grow fonder.

You'll have to perform regular reality checks.
When someone spends all their waking hours in life-or-death decision making situations, it's easy for them to become myopic. Rather than appreciating the health they have and valuing the hard work other, non-medical workers do, they can tend to put their position on a pedestal. It takes a strong partner to sit them down and bring them back to reality.

You'll become their biggest supporter.
Med school is hard. Duh. If you're not currently in school yourself, it can be easy to forget what rigourous studying and endless classes can feel like. At times, you're going to need to be their cheerleader. You obviously wouldn't be with them unless they were great, so remind them.
