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