Expectations While on Medical Leave
MIT usually expects students on Medical Leave to seek treatment outside of MIT Medical during the leave. Students are encouraged to consult with clinicians at MIT Medical, in collaboration with outside medical providers, to develop and follow through on a treatment plan. Students are expected to work with S3 or OGE to clarify the expectations and plan for the leave. S3 or OGE may individually determine other leave requirements that reflect the student’s needs and circumstances. A student whose medical circumstances are coupled with academic challenges may benefit from coursework at another institution, and, in some cases, this will be required. MIT will send the student a letter that documents the leave and return plan that was developed with the student.
