Supplementary Information

Candidates with Special Needs / Disabilities

MOH recognises that some candidates have physical limitations that make it impossible for them to fulfil the requirement for proficiency in performing procedures. For such individuals, the procedural skills requirement may be waived. Programme Directors should write to MOH for an exception before the individual enters training or whenever any disability or special need becomes established.

MOH is committed to offering suitable examination accommodations for all candidates, including individuals with disabilities and special needs. When necessary, alternative arrangements under conditions comparable to those provided for other candidates are offered to such individuals.

Candidates who need accommodation for a disability or special need during an examination must provide a written request to MOH and documentation must be received by MOH no later than the examination registration deadline. Reapplication for special accommodation is not required for each examination administration unless a new accommodation is requested. MOH treats requests for accommodations as confidential.
