Reporting Mistreatment

If a student feels that he or she has been subject to mistreatment in the learning or clinical environment, there are a variety of options for reporting.  We recognize that students may differ in how they want to address this issue, and we seek to provide a wide array of reporting options.

 Office of Professionalism

The Office of Professionalism exists as the first point of contact, providing any member of the School of Medicine (SOM) community (faculty, residents, clinical or postdoctoral fellows, staff members, graduate students and students in any SOM Program) a resource on campus to obtain a fair and equitable process and resolution for all matters pertaining to professionalism concerns or student mistreatment.
