Professional Reporting System

In order to better assess the professionalism and humanism of our medical students, medical residents and/or faculty members, we have created a survey that will permit anyone who is interested in providing the Office of Student Affairs with information. The survey may be completed if you would like us to know about a particularly good interaction with a student, resident, or faculty member, or if you have any concerns about the professionalism of the individual. The survey is meant for indicating the general behavior of an individual or a report of a single incident (e.g., mistreatment or inappropriate behavior, etc.). Reported incidents will be handled by the appropriate administrative authority in the College of Medicine. Submissions may be either identified or anonymous.

All responses will be kept in confidence.

Harassment

All USF MCOM subsidiaries are committed to providing a work environment free from unlawful discrimination and prohibit “unwelcome” or “unwanted” conduct which constitutes harassment. This policy strictly prohibits unlawful discrimination and harassment in the workplace based on medical condition, race, religion, color, national origin, disability, marital status, family status, age, sex, sexual orientation or any other basis protected by federal, state or local law or ordinance or regulation. USF MCOM affirms that all employees have a right to work in an environment free from any type of discrimination and prohibits any conduct which constitutes sexual harassment under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Unprofessional Behavior

Violations of the standards of conduct by faculty as enumerated in the Faculty Medical Learner Compact and in other University Policies shall be relayed to the Faculty Affairs dean for action based on University Policy 6C4-10.112: Faculty Misconduct and Incompetence.

Reporting System

Students who experience any incident that they feel is abuse, mistreatment or unprofessional behavior should communicate this to the Associate Dean for UME, Associate Dean for Student Affairs or the Vice Dean for Educational Affairs at USF MCOM. (View the Deans' Contact page.)

Students may anonymously communicate their concern using USF's Professionalism Reporting System.
