The purpose of this policy is to define student mistreatment and provide mechanisms for reporting violations of this policy. The Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences recognizes that preparation for a career in medicine demands the acquisition of a large fund of knowledge and a host of special skills. It also demands the strengthening of those virtues that undergird the doctor-patient relationship and that sustain the profession of medicine as a moral enterprise. This Policy serves both as a pledge and as a reminder to teachers and learners that their conduct in fulfilling their mutual obligations is the medium through which the profession inculcates its ethical values. Details of this policy can be found here. Students can report violations through the outlines measured in the policy, which includes the University at Buffalo anonymous system.

Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences also follows the University at Buffalo Discrimination and Harassment Policy.
