Diversity and Inclusion in Medical Schools - a rosy picture?

I ran across this article from Scientific American not too long ago. Diversity in medical schools and residencies is something to be celebrated. What patient wouldn't want to see a physician that looks like herself or himself and speaks their own language. But is it as easy as that?

Jennifer Tsai reports that many medical students feel pressure to hide what makes them different and unique. Whether that is their sexual orientation,  what specialties they are interested in pursuing, or even something as innocuous as how they wear jewelry.
