Brody School of Medicine
ADA Accommodations Policy

updated 8-24-15

The Brody School of Medicine supports the success of all medical students.  The Office of Student Affairs works very closely with The Department for Disability Support Services on East Carolina University's main campus to determine any accommodations that may be necessary for an individual student.  Please see their website below:

http://www.ecu.edu/accessibility/

If a medical student has a need for any kind of accommodation during their time at Brody, they will need to meet with Stephen Gray, Director of Student Services for the Department for Disability Support Services (grays@ecu.edu) to discuss their needs.  In order to provide the accommodation, the Brody School of Medicine Office of Student Affairs will need documentation from Mr. Gray's office.

All meetings with Mr. Gray will be student-initiated.  He will issue any necessary documentation to the student, and the student will be responsible for providing this documentation to the Office of Student Affairs.  This documentation will need to be updated on a yearly basis.

Each student has the right decline their accommodations.  Due to scheduling constraints, we will need to know of any change in testing accommodations 3 business days prior to the exam.

Medical students should be aware that the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) defines the criteria to be met in determining whether a disability warrants testing accommodations on the United States Medical Licensing Examination.  A student with testing accommodations here at Brody is not guaranteed to receive accommodations on the USMLE.  Students with questions about accommodations on the USMLE must contact the National Board of Medical Examiners directly for information about the review process.  Please see their website below:
