Navigating residency is difficult for most trainees, but one Canadian resident also has the challenge of being the first deaf doctor to train at her institution.

The Edmonton Journal recently interviewed Jessica Dunkley, a family medicine resident who is deaf. Dunkley, who signs in her video interview, uses a sign language interpreter when she works with patients, according the Journal.
