Professionalism encompasses a broad set of aptitudes, attitudes, and behaviors. Being a professional can mean many things, including internalizing a set of shared values, behaving according to standards of medical practice or scientific investigation, and being accountable for one’s actions. Students have a responsibility to act at all times in accordance with the highest standards of integrity. The same standards of behavior are expected in the classroom, laboratory, clinic, hospital, or elsewhere on campus, including housing, or whenever you are seen as representing the School. As a student, we expect you to adhere to the same professional codes of behavior as physicians and scientists.
