‌Professionalism Concerns

It is understood that issues experienced by students in undergraduate training can follow or resurface in their working lives as doctors. 

Should concerns be raised about a student’s ability to adhere to the statements in the Student Agreement, it is usual for support to be offered to try and remedy the issues that are impacting on the student’s conduct. 

In determining the most appropriate support or outcome, the School is informed by the GMC’s guidance, ‘Medical students: professional values and fitness to practise’. 

The Medical School keeps a register of students who have either raised concerns themselves or have had concerns raised about them by staff and/or colleagues. This is a register of concerns that does not automatically constitute referral to a fitness to practise investigation, but serves as a tool, to allow ease of monitoring of the professional progress of medical students.  

If you have any concerns about a student's unprofessional behaviour you should contact the relevant Curriculum Support Administrator in the first instance:

Year 1 Curriculum Support Administrator: med-sch-y1mbchb@glasgow.ac.uk
Year 2 Curriculum Support Administrator: med-sch-y2mbchb@glasgow.ac.uk
