If you're a student at a medical school in Pennsylvania and you're facing disciplinary action of any kind, it's critical 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, whatever the case may be, take the necessary precautions. Too much is at stake. A medical student can face lesser residency and employment opportunities, can face a career reduced earning potential if the case is not successfully resolved. Medical schools are going to use a specific procedure to resolve the case, it's going to depend on your medical school and also the nature of the case itself. It's important to understand how the case will be addressed and resolved.
It's also important to understand that medical schools are often in a rush to judgment, do not bear in mind an accused student's rights and interests, and at times, do not play by their own rules. An experienced attorney adviser can help a medical student navigate the process, can protect a student's rights and interests, and can potentially help allow for a more favorable outcome.
