Professionalism at Jefferson Medical College
Jefferson Medical College First and Second Year Students
This site is meant to serve as guidance to first and second year JMC students for matters relating to professional behavior. In these preclinical years, this translates largely into academic honesty and integrity, but also into professionalism in attire and in interaction with patients, whether in Grand Rounds, in clinical skills sessions, or in experiences on the floors.
The Student PCC exists as a resource for any questions or concerns regarding professionalism, and the goal of this site is to provide information to help you learn of the various options available to allow you to voice your concerns.
In addition to the Student PCC, students in the first two years have several other resources available to them, including the Course Directors and Course Liasons. Contact information for these individuals can be found in the Course Contacts section.
For more on each rotation, see the Course Contacts link in the sidebar to the right.
The Student PCC has made available a variety of resources to help guide in case you have a concern and are unsure of how to handle it.
Contact Your Student PCC
If you continue to have concerns or are uncertain of what to do, please feel free to contact any member of the PCC or the Student PCC as a whole. Every effort is made to respond quickly and efficiently.
