6.2.E. Respectful Workplace

The SOM’s Statement on the Respectful Workplace states the following:

“Stanford University School of Medicine is committed to providing a work environment that is conducive to teaching and learning, research, the practice of medicine and patient care.  Stanford’s special purposes in this regard depend on a shared commitment among all members of the community to respect each person’s worth and dignity.  Because of their roles within the School of Medicine, faculty members, in particular, are expected to treat all members of the Stanford community with civility, respect and courtesy and with an awareness of the potential impact of their behavior on staff, students and other faculty members.”

Compliance with respectful workplace expectations is required at all times, and in particular will be reviewed at the time of consideration an Adjunct Clinical Faculty appointment and any subsequent reappointment and promotion.  Results from the distribution of teaching evaluation forms, as well as from referee letters, will aid reviewing bodies in assessing an Adjunct Clinical Faculty member’s performance in the workplace.
