Hi guys,
I'm considering medicine but unfortunately I have no fine motor skills with my left hand. I contacted a few other medical students/physicians with the similar problems. However, I'm still very concerned if I will be able to meet the technical standards. I've tried speaking to the disabilities office of a few medical schools but they weren't able to give me a good answer.
Also i'm worried that I might only be limited to psychiatry because I'm not sure if I'll be able to do many if any procedures. A few other doctors said their are paths in radiology, pathology, and neurology . I am interested in family medicine and pediatrics. But,I'm not sure if I can even do those.
(I made a similar post before but I feel like if i give more details I'll get more info)

Hope you got the answers you needed, but feel free to PM me if you need. I am a third year wheelchair user, and also know some docs with physical disabilities.

I definitely have met a few medical students/physicians with disabilities, including one lovely person (student) who had very little fine motor skills in either hand after a spinal cord injury.

I'm not sure how helpful that is ... but I wish you the best of luck.
