Requesting a Nonstandard Examination

We support the intent of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to accommodate individuals with documented disabilities who demonstrate a need for modification. Those seeking adjustments are required to submit documentation of their disability to validate coverage under the ADA as a disabled individual. Physicians requesting nonstandard conditions should read the Guidelines for Requesting Assessment Accommodations and review the deadlines.

We will provide an additional 25 minutes of break time (35 total minutes of break time) for lactation purposes for breastfeeding mothers on their scheduled exam day. Requests for additional time must be received three months before the first day of the candidate’s assigned exam week.
