Psychiatry and Psychology
The current state of medicine has done little to correct the imbalance of underrepresented groups in the physician workforce. In this editorial, a psychiatric resident physician retells his experience as an individual who is completing his medical training while being affected by a neuromuscular disorder and how it impacts his daily life. The primary goal of this paper is to elucidate the need for greater representation and understanding of the disabled physician workforce.
