UTHealth is committed to providing equal access and opportunity for all employees, applicants, students, trainees, patients, other members of the university community and individuals who access services or programs of the university in accordance with state and federal laws and regulations, including the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), as amended. Accommodations may be provided to an individual with disabilities for access to university facilities to perform the essential functions of his or her job and/or to participate in university academic programs, services and activities.
You may be an individual with a disability if you have a physical or mental condition that substantially limits you in performing one or more major life activities. While pregnancy itself is not a “disability,” an impairment or condition caused by pregnancy or a pregnancy-related medical condition may be a disability.
