Disability begins with the medical condition but the environment determines how disabled individuals feel and are regarded in society. This lecture will focus on understanding the current numbers of physicians and pathologists that function in their day to day lives in a world that many times is not accommodating for their disability or physical health complications and needs. Modifications and accommodations for persons with physical disability and chronic illness in pathology and laboratory medicine range from those in the office setting to the gross room to the laboratory and beyond; and have led to workplace ableism as legislated by the Americans with Disability Act. However, barriers to these modifications still exist in our field and navigating them is an issue that we should all be knowledgeable about. In addition, we can potentially incorporate ways to make pathology attractive to medical students with disabilities.
