Resident Compact

The McGill University Pediatric Residency Program applies the standards set forth in the American Association of Medical Colleges Residents' Compact in assuring the highest possible standards for the environment for teaching, learning, and patient care. We hold residents, faculty, and the learning environment to these standards.

Policy on Harassment

The program and the program director have an explicit zero tolerance policy to harassment and intimidation in the residency education environment, and this is made clear to the new residents yearly. All residents have received a copy of the hospital's harassment policies and McGill University's harassment policies (as covered in the Student Rights and Responsibilities).

Residents need not tolerate intimidation or harassment, and are strongly encouraged to report incidents in the workplace to the Program Director, or to the Chief Residents. The chairman of the department is fully supportive of a zero tolerance policy to harassment and intimidation in the program. McGill University's Policy on Harassment.

McGill WELL Office

The WELL Office (Wellness Enhanced Lifelong Learning) of the Faculty of Medicine is dedicated to supporting learners throughout their training by creating, promoting and sustaining a culture of wellness and resilience within the learning environment. The WELL office provides a safe and confidential venue to seek out resources that protect and enhance your health and well-being.

Resident Health and Safety

The Pediatrics Residency program, the Postgraduate Medical Education (PGME) office and the McGill Health Care Facilities recognize that residents have the right to a safe environment during their residency training. The responsibility for promoting a culture and environment of safety for residents' rests with the Faculty of Medicine, regional health authorities, health care establishments, clinical departments, and residents themselves. The concept of resident safety includes physical, psychological and professional security.

The Resident Health & Safety Policy provides a central faculty mechanism for residents to use when faced with a health and safety issue during the course of their training which cannot be resolved at the local training site level.
