Policy on Accommodation for Residents with Disabilities

  1. Policy: Every effort will be made to reasonably accommodate those individuals with conditions or impairments that qualify as a disability under applicable law, provided that the accommodation does not present an undue hardship for the Residency Program, the Medical School or venues of training. Residents will nevertheless be required to satisfactorily meet the Program's performance criteria, requirements, and expectations.
  2. Procedure: Residents who wish to request accommodations for disabilities may do so by contacting the Residency Program for guidance in this process. Requests may also be initiated through the University of Illinois Office of Equal Opportunity and Access.
