Impact of a Medical LOA on Matching

Recommended Posts

Can anyone comment (either anecdotally or otherwise) on the impact taking a medical leave of absence may have on successfully matching?

Would it make you less competitive for certain specialities? 

To what extent would you have to divulge the circumstances of your LOA on your Carms applications/CV and during interviews? 

Thanks in advance :)

Mine had a few questions raised as it was 3 separate 3 month periods. I failed a year due to not completing a block in time so that probably limited my options more than I'd like given I matched to my 25th pick of 45

I had a medical LOA that made me join the next class, I got 16/18 interviews, nobody asked anything about it during the interviews and I matched to my 1st choice.
