Student Conduct


 

Students must demonstrate the highest standards of character and integrity that warrant the public confidence and trust bestowed on them as health professionals. The standards for PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT are included in the LSUSD Student Handbook of Policies and Procedures. Among the elements of professionalism, each student must adhere to the following specific standards of care:

  1. Each student must exhibit professional courtesy toward faculty, supporting staff, fellow students and patients;
  2. Each student must maintain up-to-date, accurate and complete records regarding treatment performed on patients and patient fees;
  3. No student shall deviate from treatment plans unless the deviation is authorized and documented in writing by the appropriate faculty;
  4. No student shall jeopardize the well being of a patient under any circumstances.

All documented reports of non-compliance with the standards of PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT specified above are forwarded to the appropriate Academic Performance Advancement Committee for review. The Academic Performance Advancement Committee may deny a student permission to continue in the educational program should the student fail to demonstrate PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT.

Misconduct

Misconduct occurring within or outside the confines of the teaching programs will subject the offending student to appropriate disciplinary measures that can include dismissal. A student who is accused of such offenses will be given an opportunity to establish innocence before the Student Affairs Committee. At the time of matriculation, all students receive a copy of the LSUHSC School of Dentistry Student Handbook of Policies and Procedures. The handbook puts forth a complete set of policies and procedures including all phases of due process relating to misconduct.
