I recently found out that i am pregant and realize that i will be due around december. Now I realize that resident interviews are around Oct-Nov-Dec-Jan. I am currently interested in internal -medicine. I want to know how schools look at a pregnant student during interview and whether this will decrease my chance of matching. I will greatly appreciate any ones advice and input and also anyone who has been in this situation. Thanks
I personally expect that any program that you would WANT to go to would look at the "whole picture" and decide if they would like you as a resident regardless of the fact you'll have a small child. I'm sure, however, that won't universally be true of all programs. It might be better to look at bigger programs with more flexibility in scheduling. We'll see what experts in this topic say, however.....
