Hazardous Affairs: Preventing Sexual Boundary Violations in Medicine

Many physicians have indicated that they were “simply not aware” of the rules and most admit they were never taught these rules in medical school. This 30 minute instructional video will teach you the rules and raise awareness of behaviors that can start you on the “slippery slope” to sexual misconduct.

Educational Initiatives and Instructional Materials

The FWC and the CPH are devoted to providing educational materials for Vanderbilt faculty and physicians. The purpose of developing these materials is to instruct and prepare physicians, scientists and trainees on professionalism and professional health related topics. Ultimately our goal is to prevent our faculty and trainees from encountering lapses in professionalism while enjoying a healthy, well-balanced career in healthcare.

Materials may be printed and used for further education of faculty and physicians at all levels in their career.  Within our educational materials you will find readings, self-learning modules, and lists of external resources that may be of interest to you. New materials are being developed and will be posted once complete. If these materials are helpful to you, please take the time to send us a note of what works well and what could be improved. An evaluation form can be found in the tab marked “Evaluations.” Thank you for your comments.
