1.00 The Learning Environment at Harvard Medical School

Harvard Medical School and its affiliated hospitals are firmly committed to fostering a culture of mutual respect and trust. It is the strong and consistent policy of Harvard Medical School to treat all members of our community with respect, to provide an environment conducive to learning and working, and to ensure equal access to rights, privileges and opportunities without regard to race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, national or ethnic origin, political beliefs, veteran status, disability or any other legally protected category. All members of the Harvard Medical School community are expected to create a positive learning environment where students, faculty and members of the administrative staff treat each other with respect. The environment should be free of harassment, intimidation, exploitation and abuse, and should be one in which feedback regarding performance can be shared without concern for ridicule or reprisal.
