Medical Student Learning Environment and Mistreatment
The Association of American Medical Colleges defines mistreatment as behavior that shows disrespect for the dignity of others and unreasonably interferes with the learning process. The vast majority of Geisel community members engage in conduct that is supportive of a positive and inclusive learning environment, and Geisel encourages reports of such conduct so that the positive contributions of students, staff, faculty, residents, nurses and others to the Geisel educational experience may be recognized.

Geisel Medical Student Professionalism Reporting
The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth takes pride in promoting professionalism and is committed to training future physicians who uphold the highest standards of the medical profession. To this end, Geisel has made professionalism one of its core competencies for graduation and defined its standards for professionalism and professional conduct that apply to faculty, students, and staff in its Professionalism Policy and the Essential Standards for Matriculation, Promotion and Graduation. These Essential Standards encompass the expectations for academic as well as behavioral conduct for our medical students. A member of the community (student, staff, faculty) who has concerns about student behavioral or academic conduct is obligated to bring forward those concerns, aligned with the responsibilities of the medical profession. Information about Geisel’s professionalism standards is provided at the link below.
