Medical & Health Profession Student Appeals

Education is critical to careers and opportunities in life and even more so for students of medical and health professions. The medical and health profession student endures one of the most rigorous education but are not exempt from the harsh realities of the disciplinary process. Such students face even greater challenges because a code of conduct violation may simultaneously trigger ethics violations with the professional licensing board further jeopardizing the student’s entire career.
Medical students are also expected to make satisfactory academic progress otherwise the student could be placed on academic probation or suspension. Medical and health profession students are known to be self-motivated and high performers but sometimes certain unfortunate events can cause a medical student to perform less than expected. Other times, students are placed in hostile clinical or preceptorship situations that are leads to adverse clinical evaluations and failures.
Our firm has experience in medical and health professions academic progress appeals, clinician evaluation appeals, school of nursing appeals, physician assistants appeals and appeals with the Texas Board of Nursing.
That’s where we come in. If you don’t agree with the services and/or program your child’s school district is offering your child you should consider consulting with a special education attorney.
With our knowledge of the law and how to interface with universities and state licensing boards, we use our experience to leverage a better settlement for medical students through mediation, meeting and talking with the school’s attorney and the licensing boards.
