I just have a question about General surgery residencies...I have Type 1 Diabetes, and use an Insulin pump, and I am wondering IF there are any restrictions on my entering a gen. surgery residency.....does anyone know the answer to this? If there are restrictions and all, what can I do about them? :shock:

Hi yodadog2,
The best place to check about any general surgery residency restrictions is your medical school of choice. The director should be able to tell you whether there are any such restrictions that exist in your area.
