Robert J. Vinci, MD, the Joel and Barbara Alpert Professor and Chair of Pediatrics, has been appointed Chair of the Appropriate Treatment in Medicine (ATM) Committee, established to ensure a respectful and supportive learning environment for medical students.
Boston University School of Medicine is committed to a work environment that is professional, collegial, supportive of all personnel, and conducive to providing the best possible patient care, teaching, and research. The School places a priority on maintaining a work environment for staff, trainees and faculty characterized by generosity, integrity, constructive interactions, mentoring, and respect for diversity and differences among members of our community. All faculty and staff are expected to model the behavioral attributes of responsibility, empathy, service excellence, problem solving and continuous improvement, efficiency, cultural competency and teamwork.
“I am excited to work with our BUSM leaders to facilitate an atmosphere of professionalism in our learning environment,” said Vinci. “We must provide a collegial environment that allows learners to fully participate in our educational programs.”
