Academic Medicine is a complex, competitive work environment that can lead to situations that test the boundaries of professionalism. While we pride ourselves on the highest standards of professional behavior our faculty demonstrate, we understand the importance of having mechanisms to manage concerns about unprofessional behavior.
OFAPD has a variety of ways for anyone to report concerns about unprofessional behavior in any SOM faculty. These matters are handled as confidentially as possible, and addressed in a manner that is fair, balanced, and respectful.
Faculty may report concerns in a variety of ways:
Contact a Member of OFAPD
Faculty may report concerns directly to any member of the OFAPD by email or calling.
Faculty may report concerns anonymously by e-mail; however, by remaining anonymous in this method, there will be no feedback or follow-up possible.
Faculty may report concerns anonymously by using the UMB hotline. This goes through the UMB campus and takes some time, but anonymous feedback and follow-up is possible. Concerns about research misconduct, Title IX violations and discrimination may be reported to the UMB hotline a well.
