Essential Functions Requirements
All UNR Med students must meet the standards of fitness for duty outlined in the Essential Functions Requirements. Fitness for Duty evaluations are used to determine if a student's academic or behavioral performance is/may be affected by impairment that includes but is not limited to: medical, behavioral or substance abuse issues. The purpose of the Fitness for Duty evaluation is to determine the student's ability to perform their academic and clinical duties responsibly and safely; meaning that they are not a danger to patients, colleagues or self. The Fitness for Duty policy outlines the procedures that will be followed to determine whether a student meets the Essential Functions Requirements. A student who refuses a Fitness for Duty evaluation will not be permitted to continue in the curriculum and may be dismissed from UNR MEd in accordance with the Student Discipline & Dismissal Process policy.
