Purpose:  ILLUMINE and the Dean’s Senior Advisory Council are joined mechanisms established by the College to support the professional conduct of its clinical faculty members and residents, in accordance with the UAMS COM Faculty Professionalism Guideline.  The purpose of ILLUMINE, a confidential reporting system, and the Council are to provide constructive feedback to physicians who, repeatedly, behave unprofessionally.  The intent of the feedback is to support reflection and learning about what it takes to behave professionally, consistently.  The DSAC meets quarterly to review reports made to ILLUMINE and to take appropriate action in the form of a confidential conversation with any physician about whom reports in ILLUMINE indicate a demonstrated pattern of repeatedly unprofessional behavior.  A progressive model of intervention underlies the Council’s actions, should one confidential conversation fail to help an individual physician correct behavioral problems.
