Counseling and referral service
This service gives opportunities for discussing personal, professional, and academic concerns on an individual basis. The Office enables students, housestaff and faculty to share on a confidential basis their concerns, frustrations and accomplishments. We try to act as a sounding board and offer advice, feedback or referral to an appropriate community resource.
Procedures and resources have been established in the School of Medicine. The Office encourages women and men to report incidents of sexual harassment and other inappropriate behavior, to discuss complaints and to use grievance procedures to file complaints when they believe they have been treated unfairly or in an offensive manner.
