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

If you're a student at a medical school in Louisiana who's facing disciplinary action of any kind, it's important to take the necessary precautions. Let your family know what's going on. Do not speak to the school or others without taking these necessary steps. Whatever the disciplinary action may entail, too much is at stake, whether it involves not meeting academic progress, facing remediation, facing dismissal, academic integrity issues, Title IX sexual misconduct charges. Too much is at stake. A medical student, if the case is not successfully resolved, can face the prospect of reduced earning potential, negatively impacted residency opportunities or employment opportunities.

Medical schools, it's important to understand that they'll use different resolution methods, depending on the nature of the case, so it's important to understand exactly how your case will be resolved and addressed. That being said, it's also important to understand that medical schools are often in a rush to judgment or not mindful of the medical student's interests and rights during the process, and at times, do not play by their own rules. An experienced attorney adviser can help a student navigate the process, can protect a student's rights, and can potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
