Accommodations Policy and Procedure
Students in Need of Accommodation for Disability
The Perelman School of Medicine (PSOM) follows the University of Pennsylvania’s Guidelines for Addressing Academic Issues of Students with Disabilities, found here: https://catalog.upenn.edu/pennbook/students-with-disabilities/
Students at PSOM must meet the technical standards of the MD program. Technical Standards are found here: https://www.med.upenn.edu/admissions/technical-standards.html
A student in need of accommodations must contact the Student Disabilities Services (SDS) through the Weingarten Learning Center https://wlrc.vpul.upenn.edu/sds/. After a formal evaluation through SDS, reasonable accommodations will be determined. SDS will confer with the Office of Student Affairs, as appropriate.
If a student has received accommodations through SDS, SDS will inform the Director of the Office for Students Affairs, who will notify the student’s course/clerkship directors.
