Question If I am pregnant...

Dear friends,
If I am pregnant, how could this affect my acceptance in the residency programm? Do you think that this is something they take into account during the interview process for not choosing a candidate?

Default I don't think you'll be discrminated

Residency programs portray themselves as equal opportunity employers and they should not "discriminate" against sex, marital status, ethnicity, religion, national origin, age, ..etc

So they should not discriminate against your pregnancy status. In fact, some of them may even empathize with you and give you more respect.
