I am a 37 yo M physician with brain cancer. I have not worked fulltime since my diagnosis 5 years ago, but my goal is to return to work in the next 6 months. I have worked on medical volunteer jobs intermittently over the last several years.
1. I'm concerned about the interpretation of my period not working - this is a big red flag in medicine. I was between jobs at the time of my diagnosis.
2. I will require some time accommodations (I can do everything I need to but at about 75% speed) and I'm not sure how to approach this when applying for a job.
3. I've been told that it is probably best not to reveal my cancer diagnosis to a new employer, but how is that possible given my first 2 question?
