Dear AJPM&R Readers,

This month, we want to highlight the results of a study on teaching medical students about disability.  Because approximately 15% of the population of the world lives with a disability and the incidence of disability is likely to increase (due to aging of the population and the high prevalence of chronic illness), every health professional should understand the basics of disability.  The clinical evaluation and treatment of persons with disabilities may require special adaptations.  Access to services and providers that understand these needs are crucial. This issue has not received enough attention in medical schools and should be addressed in medical education (undergraduate and graduate) more appropriately.
