    Anyone have dyslexia, or know anyone with it, in med school?

    Just curious if they exist and what, if any, problems arise from the problem.

    My father is now a practicing OB/GYN, but he managed to make it through med school with dyslexia and ADD. No medications needed :thumbup:

    Same with a good friend of mine from premed. She's currently an MS-IV and is dyslexic, and although there have been times that she's had to put in extra work to get the reading done, she says it's never been unmanageable.
