The Faculty of Medicine is committed to providing a safe and positive learning environment for all learners (undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows), faculty and staff. High standards of professionalism are expected of all members of the Faculty of Medicine community. To ensure a safe, supportive and positive learning environment, all members of the Faculty must uphold the highest standards of ethical and professional behaviour consistent with the values of the University of Ottawa.
One of the most important mentoring relationships a graduate student or postdoctoral fellow has is with their research supervisor. Together, learners and research mentors can foster a professional relationship centered around learning, critical thinking and excellence in research.
The Faculty of Medicine has a ZERO tolerance for mistreatment of any kind.
Here you will find information about the roles and responsibilities for both research supervisors and learners, the difference between mentoring/teaching and mistreatment, and how to report unprofessional behaviour.
Let’s work together to put strong mentorship first.
