Student Affairs is the point of contact for applicants and students who need to discuss accommodation for a disability. Applicants or students who have a disability may be entitled to a reasonable accommodation under state or federal law. Those individuals who are requesting a reasonable accommodation for a disability are encouraged to provide as much information as possible so that Pacific Northwest University (PNWU) can evaluate the request and provide reasonable appropriate aids, services or other reasonable accommodations. We ask that you (or another person on your behalf) complete this form, or provide the requested information in a different format, and provide that information along with supporting documentation to the Office of Student Affairs. Additional information may be requested after PNWU's evaluation.
You may find it helpful to review the Minimal Technical Standards for Admission and be aware of the types of instructional methods and experiences that are used in medical education and which include lectures (often in a large classroom or auditorium), class and small group discussions, labs, clinical programs and interactions (including with simulation robots), and community based rotations which include family medicine, internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, women's health, osteopathic principles and behavioral medicine.
All information shared with the University through the evaluation and/or reasonable accommodation process will be treated as confidential and maintained in accordance with legal requirements.
