Learner Mistreatment

We are here for you. Feel free to contact us if you want to discuss, disclose or report something that has happened.

This process is meant to support all residents and clinical fellows (including International Medical Graduates (IMGs) and externally sponsored learners), as well as visiting elective learners who are registered with PGME.

Call 911 or seek immediate assistance from onsite security or other authorities if you are concerned about impending harm to yourself or others. Contact a designated PGME Program leader only after your safety is ensured.

We place the utmost importance on your safety and well-being. If you have experienced or witnessed behaviour that you perceive or suspect of being mistreatment, you can discuss, disclose, or report the concerning behaviour. Please come forward even if all you would like to do is talk. 

We encourage all members of the Temerty Medicine community to practice allyship by disclosing or reporting mistreatment witnessed in the learning environment, even if not experienced directly.

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, in consultation with a range of stakeholders, has created a policy regarding learner mistreatment which places the Temerty Medicine process into our local context. The draft policy, which is pending approval by the Learner Experience Office (LEO), is available here.
