If you're a student at a medical school in Connecticut, and you're facing disciplinary action of any kind, you need to take the necessary precautions. Take the matter seriously, take a step back, let your family know, do not speak to the school or others without taking the necessary precautions. Whatever the disciplinary matter may involve, be it not meeting academic progress, facing remediation, Title IX sexual misconduct, academic integrity.
The stakes for a medical student are much higher. Residencies can be impacted. Future employment opportunities, future earning potential can all be negatively impacted if the case is not successfully handled. Schools use different resolution methods depending on the nature of the case. It's critical to understand how your school will address and resolve the case. It's also critical to understand that, unfortunately, schools are often in a rush to judgment, do not necessarily play by their own rules, and are not mindful of a student's rights and interests. An experienced attorney advisor can help a medical student navigate the school's process, can help protect the student's rights, and can potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
