Technical Standards for Charter Foundation Program (CFP)

Candidates for admission to the MD programs must have functional use of the somatic senses, adequate motor capabilities to negotiate situations in which these senses would be employed and the ability to integrate data acquired via these senses.

Compensation through technology for deficiencies in any of these areas may be acceptable; however, such compensation should not preclude candidates’ abilities to act reasonably and independently. The use of a trained intermediary would mean that candidates’ judgment must be mediated by someone else’s power of selection and observation; therefore, third parties cannot be used to assist students in accomplishing curricular requirements in the skill areas specified below.
