Honor and Professional Council

The HPC is comprised of 16 Ohio State University medical students. On a day-to-day basis, the HPC serves as an informal resource to faculty and students  in  the  College  of  Medicine. When an issue of academic misconduct or a breach of professionalism does occur, members from the HPC assume a more active role, in the form of a committee hearing comprised of students and faculty. HPC is open to all questions and comments from colleagues that pertain to matters of honor and professionalism. Members of HPC are obliged to keep matters presented to the Council strictly confidential. For anyone interested in running for a two-year term HPC position, look for an email in November concerning the elections.
