Our Services

The GME Ombuds Program provides mediation services related to resolving conflicts, disputes and complaints through an informal setting. From providing guidance on how to best navigate issues to clarification on policies and procedures, the Ombuds Program empowers house staff to advance their capacity to independently address workplace and interpersonal problems.

The role of the ombudsperson is to serve as a neutral, independent and confidential resource for house staff (interns, residents and fellows). House staff may bring any workplace issue to the ombudsperson. These issues can range from interpersonal conflicts to questions about administrative policies and procedures.
