Professionalism at Jefferson Medical College
Jefferson Medical College Third and Fourth Year Students
This site is meant to serve as guidance for JMC Third and Fourth Year students for matters relating to professional behavior. As we get closer to graduation and entering the field of medicine, professional behavior becomes more important in our daily lives -- in the way we interact with fellow students, colleagues (housestaff, nursing staff and attending physicians), as well as with patients.
However, these interactions may not always go as planned or you may encounter/witness unprofessional behavior -- in these cases, it is not always clear what is the best course of action. This site is meant to help provide you with the various options you have to address these concerns!
During the clinical years each course has various contacts for support. In the third year (MSIII), each course has a Clerkship Director (for the entire clerkship), a Clerkship Director for the site, and Liaisons (your fellow classmates) -- all of these individuals can serve as contacts and venues for the expression of concerns.
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.
