At the Kaiser Permanente Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine, we welcome students from all backgrounds and with various life experiences, including those who have or may develop a disability.
The school abides by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
To support your academic and clinical success, we want all students to understand our technical standards. As you enter your first and third years at the school, you’ll have the opportunity to confirm you can meet the expectations outlined in the technical standards, with or without accommodations.
Our Catalog explains these requirements. They cover seven areas: general functions, communication, cognitive ability, observation, motor, behavioral and social attributes, and legal and ethical standards.
If you previously required educational accommodations for a disability or think you would benefit from them at the school, please contact the Director of Academic Support and Advising.
Keep in mind that reasonable accommodations may take time to implement and cannot be granted retroactively, so please be sure to communicate requests as soon as possible.
As part of the Office of Student Affairs’ mission to foster an inclusive and equitable learning environment for our diverse student body, our Director of Academic Support and Advising is here to answer your questions and discuss how we can better support your educational experience at the school.
