The Johns Hopkins Health System is committed to promoting and providing accessibility for those with disabilities.

The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System are committed to fair and equal employment of individuals with disabilities. Reasonable accommodation is the key to this non-discrimination policy. 

While many individuals with disabilities can work without reasonable accommodation, other qualified applicants and employees face barriers to employment without the reasonable accommodation process. It is our policy to reasonably accommodate qualified individuals with disabilities, unless the accommodation would impose an undue hardship.

A reasonable accommodation is any modification or adjustment to a job, an employment practice, or work environment that makes it possible for a qualified individual with disability to enjoy an equal employment opportunity.

Examples of reasonable accommodations may include acquiring or modifying equipment or devices, modifying training materials, making facilities readily accessible, modifying work schedules, and reassignment to a vacant position.
