What Is Unprofessional Conduct?

Unprofessional conduct is a broad category for conduct that is unethical, dishonest, or otherwise falls below the standards of your profession. Some examples include:

What to Expect When You’re Accused of Unprofessional Conduct in Minnesota

When a patient accuses you of unprofessional conduct, it can be intimidating. Understanding what to expect and hiring an experienced defense lawyer to guide you through the process can help relieve unnecessary stress and put your mind at ease. In most cases, the process looks something like this.

  1. You’ll receive a letter from the board. The letter will describe the allegations in detail. It will also include a notice of your right to respond.
  2. You may receive phone calls from an investigator who will ask you questions about your actions or inaction.
  3. Written responses are submitted to the Board.
  4. An investigation is performed.
  5. A hearing is conducted.

It’s best to hire a defense attorney early on in the process to ensure your rights are protected and that you don’t do anything to jeopardize your case. The sooner you hire our team, the more we may be able to help. We can guide you through the investigation, help you prepare appropriate answers, submit your responses to the Board, and provide you with administrative license defense at your hearing.

If criminal charges are filed, we will also create a personalized criminal defense strategy. Whether it involves entering a plea bargain or defending you at trial, bringing our skill and experience to the table can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.

When Your Medical License and Your Future Are On the Line

In Minnesota, an unprofessional conduct charge or accusation could lead to the loss or restriction of your professional license, criminal penalties, or both. During your administrative hearing, if the Board finds that you were in violation of Minnesota Statutes, you could be facing:

  • Revocation of your license
  • Suspension of your license
  • License restriction
  • Civil penalties of up to $10,000 for each violation

If you are charged with a crime, you could also face steep criminal penalties including fines and/or imprisonment.
