If you're a student at a medical school in Ohio and you're facing disciplinary action of any kind, you need 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. Whatever the disciplinary action may entail, whether it involves not meeting academic progress, facing remediation, dismissal from medical school, academic integrity issues, Title IX sexual misconduct charges, too much is at stake. A medical student can face lesser residency and employment opportunities, reduced earning potential if the case is not successfully resolved.
Medical schools have specific policies as to how your case is going to be addressed and resolved so you have to understand how your medical school will do so and it's going to be dictated by the nature of the case itself. You have to understand the process. It's also important to understand that medical schools are often in a rush to judgment. They do not bear in mind a student's rights and interests and at times they may not play by their own rules. An experienced attorney-adviser can help a medical student navigate the process, can help protect a student's rights and interests, and can potentially help allow for a more favorable outcome.
