Resident Mistreatment Policy

University of Washington | Boise Psychiatry Residency Program


The University of Washington Boise Psychiatry Residency Program is committed to assuring a safe and supportive learning environment that reflects the institution’s values: excellence, respect, integrity, compassion, altruism, and accountability in all endeavors. Diversity of ideas, perspectives and experiences are integral to our mission. All individuals in our UW/ID community are responsible for creating a welcoming and respectful environment where every person is valued and honored. Mistreatment of residents by the faculty, staff and peers is prohibited. This mistreatment includes incidents of humiliation and incidents of harassment or discrimination based on gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, race, ethnicity, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, socioeconomic status, and geographic region.  It also includes the use of grading or other forms of assessment in a punitive manner.

Expectations of teachers and learners are described more fully in the Policy on Professional Conduct.
