Matriculation in medical school is a privilege, not a right. Therefore, a student can be dismissed for the following reasons:
Students who fail three or more courses in a single academic year, and Extended Study Program (ESP) students who accumulate two failures, usually receive a recommendation for dismissal. Students who receive four cumulative course failures during their enrollment at AZCOM usually receive a recommendation for dismissal. The Committee reserves the right to change its usual actions for reasons of additional consideration. All decisions of the Pre-Clinical Promotions Committee or Clinical Promotions Committee can be appealed to the Dean in accordance with policies found in this catalog.
