Technical Standards

The Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University has interest and experience in accommodating certain disabilities without compromising the integrity of the curriculum or the academic achievement required of all students.

The following technical standards describe the non-academic qualifications which the school considers essential for successful completion of the medical education program.

These standards have been developed upon consideration of various factors, including the minimum competencies expected of any physician, the demands of medical education and residency training, and the welfare of patients who will entrust their health and lives to medical school graduates.

Students accepted by the Brody School of Medicine must have sufficient abilities and skills in several essential areas. These include, but are not limited to: (1) attitudinal and emotional characteristics, (2) interpersonal and behavioral proficiencies, (3) comprehension and communication capabilities, (4) visual, auditory, and other sensory competencies, (5) procedural and manipulative potentials, and (6) high ethical standards.

Technological assistance may compensate for deficiencies or disabilities in some of these areas, but must not compromise the fundamental role of the physician or have the potential to jeopardize patient safety.

A medical school applicant requesting special consideration or accommodation on the basis of a disability may be requested to provide pertinent information for review by the Admissions and Student Affairs officers. All decisions regarding applicant requests for special consideration or accommodation will be made on an individual, applicant-by-applicant basis after careful review and thorough consideration of all relevant factors, in keeping with East Carolina University policies.

Applicants who identify a disability and request accommodations after acceptance to the Brody School of Medicine will be referred to the ECU Department of Disability Support Services for evaluation and assistance. Applicants should be aware that the National Board of Medical Examiners is the sole authority for granting accommodations for the United States Medical Licensing Examination. The provision of special consideration or accommodations by a medical school does not ensure that any similar considerations or accommodations will be provided by the National Board of Medical Examiners for the United States Medical Licensing Examination.
