The Professional Conduct Comment Form provides a mechanism for faculty, residents, fellows, medical students, and staff to report to the Professionalism Program either exemplary professional behavior OR lapses in professional behavior.
The purpose of the Professionalism Program, which is composed of key administrators, faculty and staff, is to promote and reward excellence in professional behavior and address inappropriate conduct.
Submitting exemplary behavior provides an avenue to identify faculty, residents, fellows, medical students, or staff who have modeled behavior we would like to recognize. Submitting a comment about a lack of professionalism will start a process to address a concern, which may or may not result in disciplinary action against the individual about whom the comment was submitted.
While not completely anonymous, the College of Medicine will strive to maintain the privacy of the individual who submitted the comment. However, confidentiality nor anonymity cannot be guaranteed as sufficient information must be provided to allow the person to respond and additional information may be needed. If the identity of the person reporting is necessary, the individual about whom the comment was submitted will be warned that retaliation of any kind will not be tolerated and will be treated as a violation of the Student Code of Conduct and University and ABOR policies.
The Professionalism Program is only able to recognize or change behavior if comments are submitted.
If you experience or are aware of harassing or discriminatory conduct, you are urged to report the matter to the University’s Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. University policy strictly prohibits retaliation against an individual for reporting perceived harassment or discrimination or for participating in a resulting investigation. More information can be found at the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion website.
