Here is My Question:
Will having MS interfere with my chances of getting a job in the medical field?
The diagnosis itself shouldn’t be a factor. However any disability as a result of MS could potentially limit you if the essential job functions are impacted by the disability. As a general rule, I recommend not disclosing the diagnosis to an employer.
