Illumine is the confidential reporting system that supports the implementation of the UAMS College of Medicine Professionalism Guideline.
Guideline for Action when you witness a lapse in professionalism on the part of a UAMS College of Medicine Physician (a faculty member or a resident):
Step 1: Have a conversation with the physician, sharing your observations – if you feel safe doing this. If this is successful you may decide that no further action is needed.
Step 2: Alert the “chain of command” – talk with your supervisor about your observations. Your supervisor can be a good thought partner and can help determine if further immediate action needs to be undertaken. Additionally it may be most helpful to talk with the supervisor of the physician whose unprofessional behavior you observed.
Step 3: After reflection, enter a report about your observations into ILLUMINE.
