Year 1:  Produce a document on shared principles about supporting qualified disabled individuals in the medical profession. 


Year 2: Develop a template for sharing examples of reasonable accommodations / adjustments as potential ideas to support learners internationally. These would serve as a ‘bank’ of examples to help organizations and institutions implement these for individuals.  


Year 3: Revisit the existing guidance in lieu of new literature and evidence-based research and would incorporate these findings into a new framework for disability inclusion in medicine to be used by the research community and in institutional application.
