Medical Students with Disability & Chronic Illness


Medical Students with Disability and Chronic Illness (MSDCI) provides a support system and platform for advocacy for students with disabilities and chronic illness. We are also opening the conversation about the difficulties of becoming a healthcare provider while having personal experiences with illness and disease, and how these experiences can better inform our colleagues and patient care. We are committed to increasing resources and accessibility for MD and PA students living with disability/chronic illness at Stanford and in medicine as a whole.

Any and all MD and PA students with lived experiences of disability/chronic illness and/or those with an interest in disability justice, equity, and inclusion are welcome to join our organization! 

For other opportunities and resources related to disability in medicine, we encourage you to check out the below resources:
