Accommodations

Accommodations for Disabilities

The University of Florida is committed to comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Therefore, we seek to ensure that qualified persons with disabilities are not denied admission or subjected to discrimination in admissions to or recruitment for any federally assisted programs.

With this in mind, the office of the College of Medicine ADA Assessment Committee strives to ensure that the admissions process is accessible to all applicants. The committee offers reasonable accommodations to those applicants who forward appropriate documentation of a disability, with a request for accommodation.

If an applicant has a documented disability, and would like to request reasonable accommodations to be made during the application process, s/he may contact Julian Gilder at jgilder@ufl.edu or by phone (352) 273-7978. Any information an applicant supplies is strictly voluntary, and all information and documentation related to a request for accommodation will be regarded as confidential pursuant to Title I of the ADA.

Further questions regarding disability may be directed to Jim Gorske, Assistant Dean for Students with Disabilities, at jimg@dso.ufl.edu  or by phone (352) 392-8565.
