How do faculty support a climate of professionalism?


Dr. Ann Brown, Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Professionalism, continued the 2022-2023 SOM Academic New Faculty Orientation series with the seminar "Supporting a Climate of Professionalism" (Basic Science Focus)

With a combination of didactics and examination of basic-science focused case studies, Dr. Brown addressed common professionalism concerns heard from faculty and covered the following learning objectives:

  • Identified resources that codify Duke’s commitment to a positive work climate (Including discussion Duke’s Policy on Prohibited Harassment, Discrimination and Related Misconduct, student privacy (FERPA) & the consensual relationship policy)
  • Described Duke’s resources to consult, report and/or investigate unprofessional behavior
  • Named resources to support individuals experiencing a troubling work environment
