Going to a doctor for any reason means you are putting your health in the hands of a professional and you need to trust that they will act appropriately. What happens when that trust is violated?
Across the country, colleges and universities are under immense pressure from the general public and the federal government to investigate and swiftly discipline students for sexual misconduct. Unfortunately, this well-intentioned mission to protect women on college campuses from sexual violence has also resulted in a number of male students being branded as "rapists" and kicked out of colleges and universities without the due process and protections they would receive in the criminal justice process. While the college or university disciplinary process does not result in a criminal sentence, the information gathered by the school and the determination by the school can still have lasting implications both in the student's personal/professional life as well as in the criminal process.
