Information about the MILES Committee
The goal of the MILES Committee is to provide a place where JHUSOM medical students can feel comfortable reporting instances of mistreatment, discrimination, and other related experiences.
This committee will be comprised of a diverse group of faculty who are committed to improving the learning environment for trainees.
The members of the committee will serve as trusted third parties, free of any direct evaluative roles involving students who submit the cases they are assigned, to whom students can report and discuss mistreatment events.
The MILES Committee emphasizes a restorative process rather than a punitive approach in which every report is taken seriously and in which all parties are treated fairly and with due process.
- Create an environment and system where students feel comfortable submitting reports of mistreatment and discrimination, and trust that their reports will be handled confidentially to the extent possible and taken seriously.
- Create a culture at Johns Hopkins that eliminates medical student mistreatment and works toward reducing mistreatment and discrimination among all trainees.
