OK, I posted this on another board. But this one might be a better board to post it on. Here it goes...My friends and I are debating about this. Please help me win this bet. When you apply to residency programs are you required to tell them if you have a mental illness or physical disability/condition? For example, if you are HIV or Hep positive, do you have to tell them, or does everyone have a blood test before they start? I know for medical school you have to show that you are not hep + and/or have received the vaccinations before beginning clinical rotations.
