    I'm thrilled for you that your school has given you a second chance---make the most of it!! If someone learns from your mistake and future presentations, some good will come of it =)

    Agree with previous posters -- great that you went in there not only with an apology, but with a way to benefit the entire program by presenting to those coming behind you so that they could learn from your mistake and prevent them from making the same type of error unknowingly.

    These are the kinds of things that make you open your eyes and really be aware of what's going on around you. It's one thing for students to read about something like this in a textbook (which seems like a, "well, duh, I would never do that!" type of thing), and it's another to see that it can even happen to "one of them" in real, actual life.

    Good job, and good luck!

    That's great! From reading what you originally posted and reading what you went in there and actually said, it's sounds like you heeded some of the good advice that was posted on here.

    Does anyone have a few extras minutes for me to email you a letter of apology that I have written to deliver to my clinical site tomorrow? I feel like it is written well but it would make me feel better to have another opinion from someone in the medical profession.

    Thanks so much in advance for any help/assistance that can be offered . . .

    I think the idea of the presentation is something very useful as a tool to some students who are not familiar with HIPAA and so forth.

    Congrats on being accepted again, this is a great way for you to educate others.
