Requirement Waiver Due to Medical Condition

  • Students who request to have their swim test or physical education activities limited or waived because of a medical condition should contact Professor Lade, Chair of Physical Education (al3524@columbia.edu).

In consultation with Professor Lade, students may be instructed to contact Dr. Melanie Bernitz,  Associate Vice President and Medical Director, Columbia Health , who facilitates these evaluations.
