The Ombuds Office

The Ombuds Office provides a safe, welcoming, confidential, and unbiased setting for students to relay their concerns and explore options available to them for informal resolution within the School of Medicine. Students may contact the Ombuds Office to discuss difficulties that have been unresolved elsewhere (such as the Offices of Learning Environment, Student Affairs, Medical Education, or Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) or directly if for any reason they are fearful, embarrassed, or unwilling to contact those offices.

Ombuds team members will help to identify new opportunities for systemic change and may serve as a conduit for students to bring meaningful suggestions for ways to improve the school.
