Does medicine discourage gay doctors?
In a recent issue of the journal Academic Pediatrics, Dr. Mark A. Schuster, head of general pediatrics at Children’s Hospital Boston, lays bare the experience of being gay in medicine and the constant struggle to "choose between being a doctor and being openly gay." The prose is riveting, but it is also difficult to read. For it delivers unflinching, evenhanded descriptions of a profession that is committed to helping others, yet is also capable of treating some of its own as aberrant.
