If you're a student at a medical school in Minnesota 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 with the school or others without taking these precautions. Too much is at stake, regardless of what the disciplinary action may entail. If it involves not meeting academic progress, facing remediation, facing dismissal concerns, academic integrity issues, Title IX sexual misconduct charges, too much is at stake for a medical student. A medical student, if the case is not successfully resolved, can face lesser residency and employment opportunities, reduced career earning potential.
Medical schools use different resolution methods to address the case, so it's critical to understand how the case will be addressed. It's also important to understand that medical schools are often in a rush to judgement and are not mindful of a student's rights and interests. At times, they may not play by their own rules. An experienced attorney advisor can help a medical student navigate the process and can protect the student's rights and interests, and can potentially help allow for a more favorable outcome.
