Get tested: Speech and language pathologists are specialists in diagnosis and treatment of dyslexia. Since you are at a medical school, there will be such specialists available to you. See one.

All educational : Institutions that receive federal funding are required by law (idea) to provide accommodations for students with learning disabilities confirmed by a neuropsychological evaluation done within 3 years of the request. Talk with your college's special education team & a student health doctor. You must disclose your diagnosis & needed accommodations on medical-school applications to get help.
