Overall, I take the dating habits of med students as a reminder that mating markets are not magically efficient, that even though you're a high-status professional it doesn't translate into romantic success unless you actually go out and make something of it.
I take the large number of doctors marrying doctors as some evidence of this inefficiency: it's unlikely that the tiny fraction of the population in your own profession just so happens to contain all the best matches for you.
It's much more likely that people are grabbing the closest people to hand.
In medicine more so than in less demanding professions, it takes a conscious effort to optimize your mating efforts; we don't have the luxury of "just letting things happen."Also, I take away the lesson that it's entirely possible to delay gratification forever, as many medical students spent their entire youths in "study now party later" mode, realizing at the end of fellowship that they're now in a rather unsatisfactory dating situation.
That means dedicating at least a few hours a week to meeting new people—both online and in the real world.
