Enhancing Faculty Professionalism

This workshop is open to faculty and administrative leaders.

This session is intended to provide information and resources to department, division, center, and administrative leaders who are charged with addressing and remediating unprofessional behavior among their faculty members. Policies, approaches, avenues, and resources available to enhance professional behavior at the unit and Medical School level will be discussed. Examples will be provided of how to address different kinds of behavior depending upon if patients or other staff are involved.
Real-life cases will be reviewed during the session with the opportunity for table groups to review a case study and discuss how they would handle it if it happened in their department. The session will end with a debrief from the various tables and other suggestions from the facilitators and/or other faculty will be offered. 

This program is highly interactive and includes small group breakout sessions.
