JABSOM Professionalism Concern or Question

Aloha! As JABSOM works toward a culture of safety, inclusivity, and true aloha for our learners, employees, and patients, we have created this anonymous concern form that anyone can complete at any time.

Any responses will be reviewed every Friday at 6:00 pm by our JABSOM Ombudsman, Mr. Chang Kim. As concerns are raised, he will also make the leadership of the relevant program, office, or department aware. Aggregate data will be reviewed at the JABSOM Professionalism Advisory Committee (JPAC), which meets at least twice a year to review data, trends, and make recommendations to the Associate Deans and Dean Hedges for areas of improvement. To help target efforts, we ask that you try to categorize your concern in the form below.  In the comment boxes, please add any additional information.  The more specific examples you give, the more we can follow-up to determine the next best action(s).

Because we will only be reviewing responses at the end of each week or over the weekend, please contact one of the following (as appropriate to your situation) if you feel this concern should be addressed urgently.

  • Your immediate supervisor, Program Director or Department Chair
  • Your Human Resources contact (if you are a JABSOM, UHP, RCUH or UHF employee)
  • Office of Student Affairs (medical students)
  • JABSOM Deputy Title IX Coordinator, Ms. Coco Seymour 692-1160   cseymour@hawaii.edu
  • [confidential resource] JABSOM Ombudsman for faculty and staff, Mr. Chang Kim  692-1210  cuk@hawaii.edu  ombuds.jabsom.hawaii.edu
  • [confidential resource]  UH Manoa Title IX Campus Advocate Jamie Newalu  956-9499   manoaadv@hawaii.edu or jnewalu@hawaii.edu  https://www.hawaii.edu/titleix/help/confidential/

Medical students may also continue to report professionalism concerns to their class Professionalism representative. Other concerns or questions can also be shared with your class Ombudsperson.  Drs. Carpenter, Buenconsejo-Lum, and OSA do receive concerns raised through that route.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out directly to Dr. Carpenter or Dr. Buenconsejo-Lum.
