Professional Development Evaluation
In regard to ethics and professional behavior, the students are evaluated each semester as “above satisfactory,” “satisfactory” or “unsatisfactory” in "professional development". Professional development includes issues such as honesty, ethical behavior, orientation to the patient, and participating appropriately as a team member. Failure to achieve a satisfactory score on the professional development evaluation will result in the student earning an unsatisfactory professional development rating on their grade report. An unsatisfactory rating in professional development will result in academic probation. Two semesters of unsatisfactory professional development will result in dismissal.
