If you're a medical student in New Mexico 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. Whatever the disciplinary action may entail, whether it involves not meeting academic progress, facing remediation, facing dismissal from medical school, academic integrity issues, Title IX sexual misconduct charges, too much is at stake for a medical student compared to the typical student.
A medical student can face lesser residency opportunities, lesser employment opportunities, reduce career earning potential if the case is not successfully resolved. It's critical to understand how the school will address and resolve your case. It's going to be determined by the nature of the case itself, so it's critical to understand the processes.
It's also important to understand that medical schools, unfortunately, are often in a rush to judgment, are not mindful to student's rights and interests and at times may not play by their own rules. An experienced attorney advisor can help a medical student navigate the process, can help protect the student's rights and interests and he can help potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
