MedCA provides reasonable and appropriate accommodations in accordance with the Americans With Disabilities Act (A.D.A, 1990) for individuals who have documented proof of a disability. The candidate must request and demonstrate the need for accommodation. Special accommodations will be granted on a case-by-case basis, as required by law.
The ADA regulations define a person with a disability as someone with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. MedCA requires that individuals with disabilities complete the Special Accommodations Request form available on its website under the Forms tab.
This documentation is necessary to allow accommodations to be specifically matched with the identified functional limitation in order to provide equal access to test functions for all examinees. Certain disabilities or conditions may be considered so essential to the professional practice in the field that some accommodations for eligibility or testing may not be available, as determined by MedCA.
