Types of concerns about a medical student's behaviour
The school encourages feedback on the behaviour of individual students to identify concerns.
This can enable us to provide remediation to help get the student back on track. We have classified concerns as:
- Low-level concerns – these relate to single events that might not seem significant, but if repeated cause concern. These include lateness, unauthorised absence, failure to respond to feedback, behavioural issues, missed or late submissions.
- On the spot professionalism concerns – these relate to behaviours well below the expected standard and include repeated absences or lateness, inappropriate communications and inappropriate behaviours including untruthfulness.
