The Coalition also continues to advocate and educate faculty/administrators/etc. with regard to the unique needs of health science students. For example, a letter of protest from our board resulted in an AMA journal removing an offensive essay contest for medical students titled, "Special Accommodations in Medical School-Are they fair?”
 
We strive to provide expert advice and awareness about the nuances of clinical education and to increase access to health science programs for students with disabilities.
 
Dues will strictly be used to cover Coalition costs (including website maintenance, annual symposium, training/module development, webinar development, etc.). As with all organizations, our finances are always available for member review.

To be considered for membership, please download and complete the form linked on this page, then email or fax to the number listed on the form.
