Essential Functions

It is the expectation of the Division of Physical Therapy Education that physical therapy students must be able to perform, with or without reasonable accommodations, each of the expected essential functions in order to fully participate in our program and successfully complete the graduation requirements for a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. Reasonable accommodations for qualified students with disabilities will be provided so they can meet these essential functions. Whether or not a requested accommodation is reasonable will be determined on an individual basis in consultation with the UNMC Coordinator for the Services for Students with Disabilities. UNMC will provide reasonable accommodations for persons with documented qualifying disabilities; however, it is the student's responsibility to request accommodations. Additionally, please contact the course coordinator within the first two weeks of the semester as considerable lead-time is required for authorized accommodations. All requests will be handled confidentially. If you have a learning disability and require accommodations, please make an appointment with the staff at Services for Students with Disabilities, Counseling and Student Development Center, Bennett Hall 6001, phone (402) 559-5553.
