General Questions for the LCME Secretariat
- Element 12.8 (student exposure policies/procedures), # 3:
The effects of infectious and/or environmental disease or disability on medical student learning activities. We interpreted this as having a policy for students who have an infectious disease (such as Shingles) or cannot be exposed to infectious diseases (for example because of immunosuppression) or have an environmental disease (such as latex allergy) or a disability (such as broken ankle or something more permanent). However, since standard 12.8 a is related to medical student exposure, we realized this could be interpreted differently and were hoping for some clarification.
