If you're a student at a medical school in Maine and you're 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 precautions. Whatever the disciplinary action may entail, whether it's not meeting academic progress, facing remediation, facing dismissal, facing academic integrity concerns or Title IX sexual misconduct charges. Too much is at stake for a medical student. A medical student can face diminished earning potential, reduced or lesser residency and employment opportunities if the case is not successfully resolved.
Medical schools use different resolution methods depending on the nature of the case, so it's critical to understand just how your case will be addressed and resolved. It's also important to understand that medical schools, unfortunately, are often in a rush to judgment, are not mindful of a student's rights and interests, and at times do not play by their own rules. An experienced attorney advisor can help a medical student navigate the process, protect the student's rights and interests, and can help allow for a more favorable outcome.
