Conduct & Discipline
Efforts are made to investigate and apply appropriate disciplinary measures against students who are in breach of University College regulations. Despite the relevant orientation and counselling, some students remain susceptible to a number of offences that do not augur well for communal co-existence.
The faculty and administration at KQMUC- school of Medicine requires regular and punctual attendance in all classes. Attendance and active participation in class will benefit classmates, colleagues, and enhance the individual student’s knowledge base. Therefore, students are expected to attend all Basic medical Science classes and clinical rotations. Students who are absent from 21 days continuous of the Basic medical science classes will have to repeat the class and are subject to dismissal from the MBBS program.
KQMUC– School of Medicine is committed to maintaining the highest standards of integrity, academic performance, professional behaviour, and respect for each other as individuals. Students are expected to maintain these high standards of professional behaviour in all aspects of their medical school training, in both the academic setting and in the community.
Students are required to sign an Honour Code contract prior to matriculation stating that s/he will maintain a high degree of personal honour and integrity during their medical training. Breach of this contract may result in sanctions ranging from a warning to the student’s dismissal from school. The rights and responsibilities of students with regard to regulations pertaining to student conduct can be found in the current Student Handbook.
