To the Editor: Dr Steinberg and colleagues1 discuss reasonable accommodations for disabled
medical faculty. I agree that there are many unfilled needs for reasonable

commitment to accessibility depends on the understanding that medical faculty
with disabilities can make significant intellectual and practical contributions
