Americans with Disabilities Act Requirements
Due to ADA privacy requirements, the Director of Clinical Education (DCE) is prohibited from discussing any disability with the clinical site without authorization from the student. Thus, it is recommended that the student discuss all relevant information regarding any disabilities which may have a bearing on their clinical performance, time management skills, schedules or any other clinically related issues with their clinical instructors (CI) during a private meeting at the beginning of their experience. If they are unable to reach an agreeable expectation level for the student, the DCE should be contacted. If requested and written permission is provided, the DCE will discuss the disability and implications with the CI prior to the student’s arrival at the assigned facility.
