The Florida State University adheres to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) in prohibiting discrimination against any qualified person with a disability. While the Florida State University College of Medicine endorses the spirit and intent of these statutes, it also acknowledges that certain minimum technical standards must be present in candidates for admission to and graduation from medical school. Therefore, the College of Medicine has established technical standards for admission to and graduation from the MD program.
