Individuals submitting such forms are reminded of the need for confidentiality regarding all matters of misconduct.

Behaviors inappropriate to the medical profession shall include, but
are not limited to breaches of personal confidence and trust including cheating or unauthorized use of materials during examinations; abuse, misrepresentations or other seriously improper conduct in relation to patients or colleagues including breaches of confidentiality; other misconduct in violation of University policies or the University Student Judicial Code; illegality; substance abuse; failure of judgment including that related to non-compliance in the treatment of any personal medical condition; and misrepresentation or failure in personal actions or in meeting obligations, so as to raise serious unresolved doubts about the integrity of the student to enter the practice of medicine.
