Membership

Membership is open to non-profit, accredited schools that offer programs in bachelor level or graduate health science programs. On occasion, independent entities that add extensive value and expertise may be admitted by board approval.

Cost of Membership
 a. Individual - $50 per year (US dollars)
 b. Institutional - $125 per year (US dollars) (includes up to 5 individual members.)
 
*The annual renewal date is July 1st
 
Benefits of Membership:
• Unlimited access to list-serv and list-serv archives and early registration for Symposium
• Unlimited access to Coalition webinars (the AAMC has partnered with the Coalition to create additional webinars)
• Unlimited access to Faculty Training Modules 
• 20% Discount on The Guide To Assisting Students with Disabilities: Equal Access in Health Science and Professional 
 
Education
• Advance access to Coalition Symposium Registration 
(The 2017 symposium will take place April 20th & 21st, 2017 in NY -http://meded.ucsf.edu/msds/symposium-2017 ) 
*The Symposium has sold out the last two years
 
• Access to-and ability to participate in-ongoing research and Coalition projects
 
While our list-serv is ongoing, the de-identified summaries of those conversations are also made available to members through a searchable archive.
 
The Coalition also continues to advocate and educate faculty/administrators/etc. with regard to the unique needs of health science students. Most recently, 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.
