Thank you for your response, Judy. This happend about 14 months ago while I was in Arizona. I was arrested and spent the night in jail. I completed the diversion program and the case was dismissed. My understanding is that I was not convicted of a crime so I've been answering no to anything that asks if I was. My concern is what exactly would the background check show? Would it show that I was charged with disorderly conduct/trespassing and went through the diversion program? If so, do I have a "criminal record" that would be a hindrance in pursuing a career in medicine?

If this happened in AZ,you really need to ask an AZ attorney. Different states treat arrest records differently. Best wishes.
