If you're a medical student in Kentucky who's facing disciplinary action of any kind, it's important to take the necessary precautions. Do not speak to the school or others without taking these precautions. Let your family know what's going on, too much is at stake. Whether the disciplinary action entails not meeting academic progress, facing remediation, facing dismissal, facing academic integrity or a Title IX sexual misconduct charges. Too much is at stake for a medical student. Future employment opportunities and residency opportunities can be impacted, future earning potential can be impacted if the case is not successfully resolved.
Medical schools use different resolution procedures depending on the nature of the case, so it's critical to understand how your case will be addressed and resolved. It's also important to understand that medical schools are all, unfortunately, often in a rush to judgment and are not mindful of a student's rights and interests. At times they don't play by their own rules. An experienced attorney advisor can help a medical student navigate the process, can protect the medical student's rights and can allow for potentially for more favorable outcome.
