Disability Services

The goal of Disability Services at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is to provide a physically and educationally accessible educational environment so that each student is viewed on the basis of ability, not disability. 

Our Disability Officer works with all students in the School of Medicine and the Graduate School to facilitate equal access for students with disabilities by coordinating reasonable accommodations through a variety of support services (including access modification, learning related technology, and extended test times). 

Individually designed accommodation plans and services are determined based on the documented needs of each student in conjunction with their program requirements and are created to match the specific disability-related need of each student with those program requirements in mind.

Submitting an Application for Accommodation and Services

Students seeking accommodations and services are required to submit documentation of their disability. The Director of Disability Services has responsibility for determining the acceptability of documentation and reserves the right to require additional information. Students are asked to register by submitting the Application for Accommodations and Services along with disability documentation. 

Students with self-identified concerns or problems related to academic performance or learning may contact the Disability Officer to request accommodations. 

We will not implement any accommodations until you have submitted the Application for Accommodations and Services along with all disability documentation; the information has been reviewed; and an official decision has been rendered. You should expect a minimum of one month to process accommodation requests and plan accordingly.
