A person with a disability is defined by Section 504 of Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, has a record of such impairment, or is regarded as having such impairment.

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine graduate programs actively recruit students with disabilities. Prospective graduate students are encourage to reach out to explore how the university can provide reasonable and necessary accommodations.  To begin the registration process with Student Disability Services and to establish eligibility for disability related accommodations and services, please complete and submit the SDS Online Registration Form and upload supporting documentation. Once your form and documentation are received, the next step in the process will be to meet with Kristina Nance, Disabilities Coordinator for PhD and Masters students at the School of Medicine, to discuss your needs and potential accommodations. If you have any difficulty providing documentation or need more information about any aspect of the process, again please contact Kristina Nance in the Office of Graduate Biomedical Education.
