Incident Reporting System Expands to Advance Professionalism Campus-Wide
The Miller School’s Physicianship Incident Reporting System, an information gathering database that for eight years has provided systematic feedback on professional behavior to students, has been expanded to include faculty, residents and staff. The system also serves as a direct link to leadership and administrators to inform them of conduct unbecoming of academic, community and future physicians or other professionals.
Managed by the Office of Medical Education, the secure system includes an online form and a recently established 24-hour hotline for reporting incidents.
“The Miller School is committed to upholding the utmost professionalism, expected from all members of the institution, including faculty, staff, students and trainees,” said Alex J. Mechaber, M.D., associate professor of medicine and Senior Associate Dean for Undergraduate Medical Education, who oversees the system with Ana Campo, M.D., professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and Associate Dean for Student Affairs.
