  1. He downloaded the application and they do ask about it for the state he is trying to get licensed in. he said he talked to an attorney that specializes in this stuff and said he shouldn't have a problem getting his license, it just may take some explaining. Thanks for the help!
  2. thanks for the reply. do you think it will hurt his chances on getting a license? he was not charged or arrest or anything criminally.
  3. Thanks for your response. This happened after he was accepted to his PA program so I don't think he had to put anything in CAPSA. His PA program does know though about it and yes I believe it was an academic violation. He is able to stay in PA school and complete it though. I think his worries are getting denied a license whenever he applies for it this year. I don't know if he would use the "I was framed" approach because he has not placed blame. Just certain things about his case suggest that and even his previous lawyer believed so. I don't think he would use that to a licensure agency. Does that make sense? I just am trying to see if anyone has been in a similar situation so I can give him some advice, that is all. Or if anyone has advice about what to do when he applies for licensure. He is fully going to disclose the event.
  4. Thanks for your response. I am not sure how it is shady, but I guess everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I agree this is a profession of a mature, ethic adult and integrity is at the basis of this profession. Just trying to see if anyone has been in a similar situation and if this will affect his licensure even though it was not criminal. Genuinely trying to get an answer on if this will affect his licensure, not a lecture on if someone thinks this is shady.
  5. He was not convicted of a crime at all. He was just "found responsible" by the school based on the "preponderance of evidence" which means more likely than not that he stole his roommates credit card. Its really crap how they can just do that and he got a lawyer during the process who even said it was bogus but since it wasn't a criminal case the lawyer really couldn't do much. The only privilege he lost is his leadership position and he can't travel internationally for his rotations but he is still in school. Nothing criminal ever came about it and he wasn't ever contacted by the police at all. He does have to report it though because although the program director was apparently really supportive of him, he did say that when he applies he will have to report the incident and sanctions to the medical board. I think that is why hes nervous about it.
