Staff Support Group

From time to time, employees at the Faculty of Medicine experience difficulties and feel isolated. This could be as a result of offensive or unfair treatment in conjunction with conflicts or as a result of suspicions of research misconduct. It could also be in connection with negative publicity in the media. These matters are processed in accordance with established procedures within the faculty management, in the area of work environment management or according to guidelines for the investigation of suspected research misconduct.

In order to create a body within the faculty to care for employees, the faculty has established a staff support group. The dean can refer matters to the group. The group provides support and active assistance with a positive approach. In practice, this can cover anything from psychological support to practical help.
