Clerkship Policies and Guidelines


  • Learning Environment Policy
    The purpose of this policy is to enhance the learning environment for students in the UNC School of Medicine, residents, fellows, attendings, hospital staff and other trainees. As our institution adapts to a rapidly changing health care environment, we must support an atmosphere in which learning is encouraged and the roles of all participants in the system are respected and valued. Institutionally, we have an ethical responsibility both to affirm our aspirations for a positive learning environment and to specify procedures in case of mistreatment of trainees. What follows is consistent with the UNCHCS Code of Conduct and existing UNC policy on the relationships of students and faculty.
