If you're a student at a medical school in Wisconsin 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, 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 from medical school, academic integrity issues, Title IX sexual misconduct charges, a medical student has a lot to lose.
A medical student can face lesser residency and employment opportunities, career reduced earning potential if the case is not successfully resolved. Understanding how your school will address and resolve your case is key. Your school will have specific policies in that regard that must be understood. It also must be understood that medical schools are often in a rush to judgment, they do not look out for a student's rights and interests all too often, and at times, they may not play by their own rules. An experienced attorney adviser can help a medical student navigate the process, can protect the student's rights and interests and can help potentially allow for a more favorable outcome.
