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

If you're a student at a medical school in Missouri and you're facing disciplinary action of any kind, it's important to take the necessary precautions. Take a step back, let your family know what's going on, do not speak to the school or others without taking the necessary precautions. Too much is at stake for a medical student. Regardless of what the disciplinary action may entail, whether it involves not meeting academic progress, remediation concerns, facing dismissal for medical school, academic integrity issues, Title IX sexual misconduct charges, too much is at stake. A medical student has a lot to lose.

Unfortunately, if the case is not successfully handled, they could face lesser residency and employment opportunities. They can face career reduced earning potential.

Understanding how the case will be resolved is critical. Depending on the nature of the case, that's going to dictate the resolution procedure that your school would use. Also, understanding that a medical school is often in a rush to judgment and is not mindful of a student's rights and interest, and at times does not play by its own rules, that also has to be kept in mind. An experienced attorney advisor can help a medical student navigate the process, can help protect the students' rights and interests, and can help potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
