What should I do if I am facing disciplinary action at a medical school in Iowa?

If you're a student at a medical school in Iowa and you're facing disciplinary action of any kind, you need to take a step back, you should let your family know, you should not speak to the school others without taking the necessary precautions. Medical student unfortunately has too much to lose. Regardless of the disciplinary action, if it involves not meeting academics progress, facing remediation, academic integrity, Title IX sexual misconduct, too much is at stake if the case is not successfully handled. Future earning potential can be impacted. Residency and employment opportunities can all be negatively impacted.

Medical schools use different resolution methods depending on the nature of the case, so it's critical to understand what will be taking place like the specific resolution procedures. It's also important to understand that medical schools, unfortunately, often are in a rush to judgment, often are not mindful of the student's rights and interests and unfortunately often do not play by their own rules. An experienced attorney advisor can help medical student navigate the process, can protect the students rising can potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
