Report Medical Student Mistreatment
If you have experienced or witnessed mistreatment of any kind, or think you may have experienced it, help is available.
Those experiencing or witnessing student mistreatment are strongly encouraged to report it immediately. Consistent with the UI COM Positive Learning Environment Policy, reports of medical student mistreatment and other learning environment concerns will be taken seriously. Detailed information about the various methods for reporting and the process that follows is available in Reporting Medical Student Mistreatment and Other Learning Environment Concerns and the Report Flowcharts. One such method for reporting is the online report form, which can be accessed by clicking on the button below:
This online report form may be used by anyone to report an incident of medical student mistreatment you have experienced or observed. Reports submitted through this form will be reviewed by the UI COM Director of Medical Student Learning Environment (DMSLE)** within 2 business days to determine next steps. As such, you should not use this form to report events presenting an immediate threat to the health or safety of any person, including yourself. If there is an immediate risk to health or safety of any person, please call 911 to connect with medical support or local law enforcement.
Any reports of student mistreatment/learning environment concerns that include claims of sex or gender-based discrimination, harassment, assault and/or Sexual Misconduct, should also be reported to the UIC Title IX Coordinator.
Incidents/concerns containing claims of unlawful discrimination and/or harassment should be reported to the UIC Office for Access and Equity AND to UI COM as described herein.
If you are unsure whether or not an incident involves sexual misconduct or unlawful discrimination/harassment, please report to both the UI COM and to the appropriate office as described above.
**Though all efforts will be made to respect the privacy of any person making a report, the DMSLE may, in limited circumstances, be required by law or policy to share the report or information from the report with others. There are, however, confidential resources available on campus, including the UIC Counseling Center and the Campus Advocacy Network. If you have any questions about the reporting process or the privacy of the reports, contact the DMSLE, Tim Lacy, at [email protected] or (312) 413-9632 for more information.
