All accepted and currently enrolled medical students are required to promptly report any criminal charges ever filed against them, including felony and misdemeanor charges other than minor traffic violations.  These reports should be made in writing and sent to the Associate Dean for Student Affairs.  They should include conviction information, all types of adjudication, and all legal processes not yet resolved (e.g., an arrest record for an offense pending court disposition, an unresolved bench warrant, a failure to appear in court.)  Any charges that were previously disclosed on the secondary admissions application need not be reported again. 

The report will be reviewed by the Criminal History Review Committee, which consists of the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, Associate Dean for Admissions, Associate Vice President for Health Affairs/Diversity Initiative, Dept. of Public Safety representative, School of Medicine legal counsel, and a mental health professional (university student health counselor).  

Discussion and the recommended course of action will be in the context of future implications for licensure, threat to patient safety and the ability to be an appropriate member of the medical profession.
