This week, we discuss the experiences of residents and medical students in surgery who identify as LGBTQIA+. We discuss the question of disclosure during interviews, how to identify programs that are welcoming to diverse identities, and how AOSA has grown the community of trainees and faculty mentors and hopes to continue to support them in the future.
