This faculty guide, developed by the Department of Medical Education, provides a description of policies, guidelines, and procedures relevant to the Morsani College of Medicine educational programs. It is intended to serve as a resource for faculty to be mindful of as they teach, mentor, advise, and interact with learners.

Several of the policies, guidelines, and procedures within the document have explicit requirements from the LCME accrediting organization to make faculty aware of this information. Such topics include, but are not limited to anti-discrimination policy and procedures; learning environment/professionalism; student mistreatment; confidentiality of student educational records; and advancement, graduation, and due process guidelines.
