Withdrawal, Suspension, Dismissal
Withdrawal can be initiated by a student for personal reasons. Requests for withdrawal must be presented in writing to the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Student Education.
Suspension or Dismissal
The faculty reserves the right to recommend the suspension or dismissal of any student whose conduct, health, or academic performance would be judged to render the student unfit for the practice of medicine. Suspension or dismissal must be recommended by the Student Promotions Committee or the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Student Education.
An administrative suspension may be instituted by the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Student Education when a student is confronted with a personal issue that could interfere with appropriate medical school study. Final approval of a suspension or dismissal is made by the Dean of the School of Medicine.
