Medical students with learning disabilities

What types of resources are available for medical students who have learning disabilities? There are not many published papers or studies evaluating various strategies to accommodate medical students in the United States. In Asian medical schools, public and professional awareness about learning disabilities remains low, supportive provisions are limited, legislations are inadequate, data are scarce, and equal-opportunity/widening-participation policies are not implemented effectively in the HE sector. Here is a 2010 paper discussing those issues in Asian countries: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3643129/
