If you're a student at a medical school in the Caribbean and you're facing disciplinary action of any kind, it's important to take necessary precautions. Take a step back. Make certain that you have a dedicated person in your corner from the start of the process. Do not speak to the school or others without taking the necessary precautions, too much is at stake.
Whatever the disciplinary action may involve, if it involves not meeting academic progress, facing remediation, facing dismissal for medical school, academic integrity or academic misconduct charges, too much is at stake. A medical student can face lesser residency and employment opportunities, career reduced earning potential if the case is not successfully resolved.
Understanding your school's particular resolution methods is key. Your school will have specific policies in that regard that must be followed. It must also be understood that medical schools, unfortunately, are all too often in a rush to judgment. They do not bear in mind and accuse students rights and interest. At times they do not play by their own rules. An experienced attorney advisor can help a medical student navigate the process. He can help protect the accused student's rights and interest and can help potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
