The Clinical Promotions Committee meets, as needed, to review academic and professional progress of students in the third and fourth years. Students not in an extended study program who have one failure have the option to meet with the Committee, but they are not required to do so. Students with academic failures, or with identified academic deficiencies, as well as those who have not met the professional standards set forth in the Osteopathic Oath, are required to meet with the committee. Notification of the date, time, and place of the committee meeting is sent to the student at least 48 hours in advance by priority e-mail to their official MWU e-mail account, or telephone. Decisions of the committee are confidentially e-mailed to the affected student using his/her official MWU e-mail account. The right of appeal exists and is described elsewhere in this catalog. Appeals must be filed in writing with the Dean of AZCOM within three working days following official notification of the committee decision.
The Clinical Promotions Committee also recommends to the Faculty Senate for graduation those students who have successfully completed all curriculum requirements, who have passed COMLEX-USA Level 1 and Level 2 CE and PE of the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners examinations, and who have paid all tuition and fees.
