Within the medical practice, clinic, hospital or university setting, faculty and supervisors exercise significant power and authority over others.
Therefore, primary responsibility for maintaining high standards of conduct resides especially with those in faculty and supervisor positions.Members of the medical faculty and staff, including graduate assistants, are prohibited from having "Amorous Relationships"with students over whom they have "Supervisory Responsibilities." "Supervisory Responsibilities"are defined as teaching, evaluating, tutoring, advocating, counseling and/or advising duties performed currently and directly, whether within or outside the office, clinic or hospital setting by a faculty, staff member or graduate assistant, with respect to a medical, nursing or healthcare professional student.
Such responsibilities include the administration, provision or supervision of all academic, co-curricular or extra- curricular services and activities, opportunities, awards or benefits offered by or through the health entity or its personnel in their official capacity.
