We, as osteopathic medical students, will work cooperatively and closely together to achieve our shared goals of becoming excellent physicians. This closeness lends the necessity to know each other well. As a gay male, I am concerned about the issues of being out to students, faculty, and staff. Some schools claim that they do not discriminate against those with different sexual orientations, while others lack this stance. I am wondering how other students and their gay friends have encountered and resolved this issue.
