Why Be in the know

The Faculty of Medicine is committed to providing a safe and positive learning environment for all learners, faculty and staff.

The same high standards of professionalism are expected of all its members. It is the duty of all members to be committed to uphold the highest standards of ethical and professional behaviour consistent with the values of the University of Ottawa and with the values of the medical profession as exemplified in the Code of Ethics of the Canadian Medical Association*.

These standards are published in Policies and Procedures*

The Faculty of Medicine has a ZERO tolerance for mistreatment of any form.  But it can only act if inappropriate behaviors are reported back to the medical school. The purpose of this website is to provide all users with the necessary information to ‘Be in the know’:

  • Know the difference: teaching or mistreating
  • Know where to get help
  • Know how to report
  • Know next steps

Let’s work together to stop the cycle of mistreatment.
