UCSF is committed to assisting learners with disabilities reach their full potential and succeed in our educational environment. UCSF’s is commited to protecting the privacy of all learners. Early communications with SDS and your School of Nursing liaison are essential to implementing accommodations in a timely manner.

Accommodations (quarterly steps)

  1. Before each quarter in which you would like to use approved accommodations, contact Assistant Dean of Student Affairs Michael Trevino at [email protected] to give him permission to contact the faculty and clincal instructors that you would like notified of your approved accommodations. Please give the faculty and course name(s) as well as their email addresses in your email. Assistant Dean Trevino will confidentially email your request to the appropriate faculty in a timely manner. He will work in collaboration with you, faculty, and clinical instructors to discuss how the accommodation(s) can best be made in each of your courses.
  2. Students are expected to initiate contact to discuss their accommodation letter with each of their faculty and clinical instructors after Assistant Dean Trevino has contacted them. It is highly recommended that you do so in advance of the start of the quarter; this is essential to ensure that your accommodations are effective and beneficial to you. 
  3. For MEPN students, at the time you begin the Master of Science/Nurse Practitioner specialty portion of the program, you will need to meet with your program advisor to provide a copy of your accommodation letter and to discuss accommodations; Assistant Dean Trevino can assist with this process.

Accommodations in the Clinical Setting 

Accommodations in the clinical setting may differ from those for the didactic/classroom setting. SDS will work with Assistant Dean Trevino, the Faculty of Record (FOR), and clinical intructors to determine if the requested accommodations are reasonable and do not alter essential outcomes of the program requirements or technical standards.

If there are any questions or concerns, please contact SDS and/or Dr. Trevino immediately, and we will engage in the interactive process to resolve the concern.
