The Academic and Professional Evaluation of Students

<< Back to Assessing Academic Achievement and Professionalism

In order to continue their studies at the Washington University School of Medicine, students must demonstrate the ability to synthesize and apply knowledge and the capability of becoming a safe and effective physician. In addition, they must demonstrate the principles of professionalism including sound judgment, honesty and integrity, responsibility, a sensitivity and compassion for individual needs, and compliance with applicable laws, policies and regulations. Serious or repeated breaches of these principles will be referred to the CAPES for review. See Guiding Principles of Professionalism.
