    Hello everyone!

    Slate has a very thought provoking article about the need to increase the number of doctors with disabilities and how it could improve health care. The article compellingly argues that since roughly 20% of Americans are disabled, doctors with disabilities may be better able to relate to them and assist them. They also argue that the current medical school admission standards are discriminatory and many disabled students can safely and effectively practice medicine with the aid of readily available technologies.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Hello everyone!

    Just a short FYI that the New York Times published an article today that essentially echoes the sentiments of the Slate article referenced in the post above.
