When a medical student with a disability gets dismissed from school

Over the years, we have encountered a number of medical students with disabilities who have been dismissed from medical school. Some of these students have learned valuable lessons by going through both positive and negative experiences. Others have struggled alone, seeking to find information, advice, and guidance.

If you know anyone who could provide support, guidance, or assistance to medical students with disabilities, please let us know and contact us.
