Exemplary Professionalism Report (Login Required)
Professionalism is a core value for all health care professionals, and our profession strives to recognize both exemplary behavior as well as acknowledging lapses.  Please report any observations of exemplary professional behavior from UK COM faculty, staff, residents, or students that reflects the professionalism competencies of the UK COM:

  • Accountability and Responsibility: manages personal attributes, commitments and/or limitations that might impact one’s effectiveness
  • Sensitivity and Respect: demonstrates sensitivity and respect toward patient individuality, including but not limited to age, gender, ethnicity, belief system, sexual orientation, and disabilities
  • Professional and Respectful Interactions: treats patients, their families, colleagues and other health professionals with respect
  • Integrity and Ethical Behavior: demonstrates integrity and ethical behavior in all settings.

Recognition of these individuals helps foster a supportive learning environment.  


Professionalism Concern Report

Professionalism is a core value for all health care professionals, and our profession depends on the candid acknowledgment of professionalism lapses.  Please report any observed incidents about UK COM faculty, staff, residents, or students.  The primary goal is to return any involved individual to being valued and productive members of the UK COM. The more detail provided, the more likely COM leadership will be able to reach an appropriate resolution. Every effort will be made to preserve the anonymity of the person reporting, even if that student chooses to identify himself/herself.  COM leadership will not disclose any identifiable information unless the student gives explicit permission to do so.
