SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I will be entering medical school this upcoming fall and am beginning to feel a bit nervous about the fact that I have a hearing loss and wear hearing aids. Has anyone else here gone through this, and what kind of difficulties did you encounter? I'm not really worried about how it will impact my schoolwork or social life, as I got through undergrad just fine, but I'm more worried about how it might impact the clinical side of things, such as using a stethoscope. I've talked to my audiologist about the stethoscope issue, but is there anything else that was made difficult by the use of hearing aids? Thanks for any advice.
