My topic title pretty much says it all. I have MS, fortunately didn't cause me a single problem during all of medical school, but if it recurred I could have difficulty performing my intern responsibilities. The thing is, it's been SIX YEARS since I had any problems and I hate to even mention something that might never happen. OTOH I heard from interns in my program during the interview that our PD "will absolutely go to bat for you if you have a problem." So it seems to me that if I talk to the PD ahead of time, it would help just in case I need that kind of advocacy. Note that the ONE time I raised the issue during a rotation in med school, the rotation director at one site refused to place me because of the concern. (yeah, yeah, I know but it wasn't worth fighting, I just went to another site and it turned out fine.) So I am a little leery about exposing myself to potential discrimination I guess...... one advisor has already counselled me that I'd be best keeping this to myself unless it became an issue, that bringing it up now when I'm not having any problems is just going to make people nervous. Would love to hear from anyone else who's dealt with this or who knows someone who has... or from senior residents who know what the PD's perspective is likely to be, thanks!
