Evaluations and Expectations

Professional conduct is expected from students at all times, both in the academic and non-academic setting.  Professionalism is an essential component of all course and clerkship evaluations and is a primary factor considered by the Progress and Promotions’ Committees.  Any lack of professionalism outside of the academic setting will be considered for referral to a Conduct Hearing by the Executive Associate Dean for Medical Education and Student Affairs.   Ultimately, continued enrollment in Emory University School of Medicine is subject to the decision of the Progress and Promotions Committees, the Executive Associate Dean, and the Dean who must be assured that academic grades and overall performance are satisfactory, that the student is complying with the rules and regulations of the University and the School of Medicine, and that the best interests of the School and of the other students are being served through the student’s continued enrollment.
