Faculty members are expected to act in a professional manner in their interactions with students, trainees, patients and families, and colleagues. Faculty are expected to maintain a high standard of ethics in research. Professionalism is assessed during the annual faculty evaluation and is a required criterion for reappointment, promotion and tenure at all levels. The Professionalism statement for Medical Staff is located on CenterLink (under the Managers tab, click on Academic Affairs and Career Development under Resources, then click on “Professionalism”).
The OAACD created a professionalism challenges resource document for faculty that may be accessed in the same section on CenterLink. The booklet contains descriptions and contacts for issues related to research misconduct, medical staff professionalism concerns, research compliance, mental health and substance use, and ethics.
