SAFE: Supporting a Fair Environment

Report a professionalism accolade or concern about the learning environment

Washington University School of Medicine strives to support all learners, faculty and staff in the academic medical center in providing an environment conducive to learning, research and high-quality patient care. We aspire to a work and learning environment characterized by inclusive excellence, free from behavior that is harassing, threatening or intimidating, where all people witness and experience respect and collegiality. Professionalism consists of fundamentally important qualities including altruism, compassion and empathy, respect for patients and health care workers, commitment to ongoing excellence, honesty, trustworthiness, integrity, accountability, recognition of limits, collaboration, and duty to society. All members of our community are responsible for contributing to these goals in the medical center environments of patient care, research and education.
