When residents encounter professionalism concerns, it is very important to speak to someone about this. Many residents choose to start by speaking to a peer, direct supervisor, faculty advisor or mentor, program director or department head or clinic, or ethics consultant for the clinic, hospital or region. However, sometimes these supports are not available or appropriate, or more information is needed.
Other available resources available to residents include:
