3.5: Disability Accommodations

Students with disabilities (including, but not limited to, temporary and permanent physical, psychological, or learning disabilities) who may need academic accommodations (including services and auxiliary aids), should register with the Office of Accessible Education for assessment and approval of such accommodations. The Associate Dean of Medical Student Affairs coordinates with the Office of Accessible Education to facilitate accommodations. Students with documented disabilities are responsible for notifying the Associate Dean of Medical Student Affairs of their accommodation needs. For exam accommodations, students are responsible for notifying course directors and managers of their needs well in advance to allow sufficient time for accommodations to be met. Students should not request accommodations directly from faculty members or clerkship directors prior to registration with the Office of Accessible Education.
