Did You Know?

Did you know that StationMD doctors receive specialized training in the care of individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD)? Unfortunately, disability specific content is rarely included in most medical school curriculum, resulting in many doctors lacking an understanding of the basic principles of disability healthcare. Individuals with IDD deserve doctors that have the knowledge, attitude, and competency to deliver effective and compassionate care.

In addition to the specialized training, StationMD’s doctors regularly participate in educational sessions to better understand all aspects of caring for individuals with IDD. This includes lectures from nationally recognized speakers and monthly educational reviews in conjunction with a peer reviewed quality program. Our doctors have participated in thousands of virtual consultations with individuals with IDD. At StationMD, we believe that people with disabilities deserve the best possible care by doctors who understand all their needs.
